Best Prepaid Internet USB Modems

Getting Started with Prepaid Internet USB Modems & Wifi Modems

PocketWifi-4G

Getting started with prepaid mobile broadband involves purchasing a prepaid internet USB modem or Wifi modem from one of the many telecommunications providers, and then recharging the SIM card with prepaid credit. In most cases your prepaid internet USB modem or Wifi modem will actually come with some initial data credit to get you started (usually lasts for 15 or 30 days).

If you already have a modem and you have unlocked it (recharged enough and had the provider officially unlock it) then all you need is a new prepaid SIM. Note, that your prepaid internet USB modem will need to be able to reach the required frequencies for the sim card provider you are using. Listed below are all of the prepaid broadband starter kits for mobile currently on offer from the major providers in Australia. Use our list to compare and save on a kit today!
