The hotspot, which allows up to five devices to connect to it to simultaneously to share a 4G connection, is available for $79. It includes 3GB of mobile data (with a 30-day expiry).
More data can be purchased with Telstra's Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband Data Passes, which start at $10 for a three-day, 1GB pass. The top-tier pass includes 16GB of data with a two-year expiry for $140.
Telstra's CEO, Andy Penn, recently revealed the telco's plan to invest an additional $500 million in its mobile network.
