Hi,

My friend is going to visit Australia for 1.4months. He want broadband in his laptop for that period. Can somebody please provide what are the options for taking broadband. What does he require to buy etc?

He is going to stay in some hostel and wireless broadband is not available for customer.

Just go into one of the DSE shops over there and pickup a USB pre-pay modem. They have about 10 different carriers to choose from. I found Vodafone had the best cost/GB ratio and decent coverage back in May. Telstra was the most expensive option, Optus have a very slow 3G network and '3' have poor coverage.
