Post paid data sim mobile modem

Hi,

I want to purchase a mobile modem for an Optus data only sim that is post paid. What devices are compatible? I want to use it for family to be able to access wifi when travelling.

Thanks, Anbe

Optus Wireless Broadband - 200/500Gb plans if you go month to month BYO device (via webchat/instore only_

 

https://yescrowd.optus.com.au/t5/Mobile/Optus-Wireless-Broadband-eligible-device-list/m-p/512447#M61...

 

Wireless Broadband itself comes with either a Netgear 800s or Huawei B525 router.

 

If you wanted a Mobile Broadband plan e.g. from:

https://www.optus.com.au/shop/broadband/mobile-broadband/data-sim-card?SID=con:mbb:3up:2:dsim

Then you will need either a Tablet that supports the Optus mobile bands or a wifi hotspot that supports the Optus mobile bands.

 

An Option is just to buy a prepaid plan that comes with a device, e.g. 

https://offer.optus.com.au/shop/prepaid-device/wifi-e5577

 

$99 gets you the device and 50Gb of data for 28 days.

Once thats been used you can sign up for an Optus post paid Mobile Broadband plan (not wireless broadband) if you wanted.
