New USB Bigpond Wireless Broadband Card

By David Richards | Thursday | 14/12/2006

Thousands of new notebook buyers can now relax following Telstra's announcement that it is launching a new USB broadband card.

The problem for many new notebook owners is the new Intel Dual Core Processor and the inclusion of a PCI Express technology that prevented the traditional PCMI cards from being used.

Telstra customers now have two new ways to access BigPond Wireless Broadband on Telstra's Next G network, with the launch of a USB Mobile Card and desktop Modem.

BigPond Group Managing Director, Mr Justin Milne said that together with the Mobile Card for laptops launched on October 6, the new Windows-compatible devices make wireless broadband access a reality for virtually everyone living within the Next Gâ„¢ network area, Australia's greatest 3G network.

"Telstra is committed to broadbanding Australia and with our mobile and desktop BigPond Wireless Broadband options anyone in our extensive coverage area can connect to the Next GTM network.

"Each BigPond Wireless device provides access to our superfast plans, with download speeds averaging 550Kbps to 1.5Mbps, and peak network downlink speeds of up to 3.6Mbps.

"The USB card will match BigPond Wireless Mobile Card pricing, with plans based upon time, speed or downloads.  Wireless modem plans start from $39.95 a month for a 256kbps/200MB 12-month plan with four other options providing faster speeds and more downloads.

"This is great news for customers without access to wired broadband services, such as ADSL or Cable, or those customers who want freedom to relocate, such as students and tenants. 

"The USB card also means you can swap between an office or home PC and a laptop for when you need to be on-the-move. You can even connect when travelling with roaming available in thirty countries.

"Our new Modem and USB Mobile Card have the added advantage that they can be used on any Windows laptop or Windows desktop PC with a USB port, including laptops that don't have a PCMCIA card slot.  A Mac-compatible version will be available early in the New Year," Mr Milne said.
