USB modems at Temora

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Hope to go to Temora, and was going to take a Netbook with me, but was wondering which USB modem would be best. So if any of you went last year and used one I would be interested to know

 

a) which provider you used (Telstra, Optus, Virgin, Vodafone, 3 etc)

 

b) how good was the reception

 

c) would you recommend it

 

Thanks in advance

 

Neil

Hey mates,

 

I had my iPhone with me last year. I use Optus and, if I remember rightly, I had no 3G reception while there. So, unless they've done some upgrading to their 3G coverage, Optus is a no-go at Temora Aerodrome. Maybe call one of the locals and ask them about 3G reception?

Thanks very much for your replies, guys. I guess the Telstra one gets it....Shame it's the most expensive!

 

Cheers

Hi Storchy Neil! Good to hear from you. Yes - my old phone needed replacing anyway so I have decided to lash out some dosh & get a new one and a Telstra connection.

 

Hope to see you there!

 

Cheers

I've got a NextG phone and also a USB modem. Both work out at the airfield, apart from inside the club house... still is a total black hole for phone coverage

Living in Temora, the only carrier I would consider is Telstra. Not because I'm a great lover of Telstra or their plans, they are simply the only carrier that provides reasonable coverage in this area. Even this is pretty patchy once you are any distance out of town. (Pretty good coverage at 3,500' though!). 004_oh_yeah.gif.82b3078adb230b2d9519fd79c5873d7f.gif
