|Prepaid Mobile Broadband Review – Boost Mobile (November 2012)|
|Boost Prepaid Mobile Broadband is offered via the Optus network and comes with two starter kits the standard USB modem (no longer offered) and the popular Wifi modem. For $129 you are given access to the standard Wifi USB modem plus 6GB of data and 186 days to use it. This starter kit lasts for 30 days and then the recharge options begin with $10 for 360MB and increase all the way to $130 for 18GB which lasts for 365 days. Compared to the Optus Prepaid Connect N Surf plans, Boost plans actually offer you more recharge options and slightly more data. For $130 Optus only gives you 17.25GB, 12 months to use it whereas Boost gives you 18GB.
In late January 2013, Boost will be serviced by Telstra. It will be interesting to see what the rates look like a month after the switch has happened. Existing customers will stay being serviced by Optus. New customers will be given Telstra 3G (and 4G I would expect).
