|vividwireless is an exciting new company launching a seriously fast 4G wireless Internet network. Initially we are launching in Perth and we’ve got plans to extend our service to other metropolitan centres across Australia.Until now, Australians have been limited in their choice of wireless broadband services to voice and call providers offering wireless broadband as an add-on over traditional 3G networks.This service is only available in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane.|

|Prepaid Mobile Broadband Review – Vivid Wireless (April 2012)|
|Vivid Wireless where Australia’s first provider of 4GB mobile broadband. The service began in WA and is gradually making its way across all Australian capital cities. Recently Vivid Wireless was purchased by Optus.The cost to start up with Vivid Wireless is $49 and at the moment this 4G speed USB modem comes with no data. There is also the option of a Wifi modem which retails for $99 and also comes with no data. Given every other provider is atleast offering a few GBs of data with the starter pack Vivid Wireless have some catching up to do.
Beyond the starter kits, the recharge options include two unlimited plans. The first for $5 lasts one day and the second for $30 lasts a whole 7 days. I would have liked a longer term option but maybe this depending on the popularity of the recharge vouchers. $19 will buy you 1GB and 30 days, $29 offers 3GB, $39 offers 4GB, $49 offers 6GB, all still 30 days. For a 60 day recharge you need to spend $79 and for that you receive 12GB and finally for 180 days you need to spend $149 for 15GB.
Some longer term options are also required here, atleast something that lasts 365 days. It will be interesting to see what Vivid Wireless does and what it offers once the sale to Optus is formalised.
