Pre-paid Mobile Broadband

Hi,

I will be in Melbourne for 10 days from this Thursday.

Which pre-paid mobile broadband plan would you recommend for short term use during my stay? Where to buy?

I would be setting up portable WIFI hotspot with HTC smartphone,

Thanks.

Are you looking for a SIM for phone or dongle?

Not knowing how much data you will need, have a look at this site for some comparisons

You can purchase online or when you get here at any telco store and most major supermarkets.

Looking for SIM for phone.

Laptop to connect through hotspot on smartphone.

Will mostly be in Melbourne with occasional connection to Internet to check information for the trip.

Connection rates in hotels and apartments are very high!

there are many free wifi spots in the city so it might be easy to just use your own sim at these spots- eg cafes, otherwise it is possible to buy a sim and toggle for optus or vodafone just about at any convenience store or supermarket or phone shop in the city- there are many around- and these are more than adequate for inner melbourne
