BigPond Next G Wireless Broadband Mobile Card

CNet (link dead) reviews BigPond Next G Wireless Broadband Mobile Card wireless accessory and concludes with editors’ rating of 9 out of 10 that the mobile card has true ADSL-class speed, solid signal penetration into buildings, extensive network coverage and excellent manual, while it still has some obvious coverage “black spots”, and setup software hijacks your browser without warning. Overall, if you fancy a 1.3Mpbs broadband pipeline direct to your notebook, without a cable in sight, then the new BigPond wireless data card makes good on Telstra’s lofty promises for its Next G network.

    Since October 2010, I have had wireless elite gateway from bigpond. I have not had internet on properly. It can go off for a day, days and even weeks at a time. Now its on and off like a yo yo bouncing up and down. It doesnt normally come on long enough to browse much less do any work online. I am on dissability pension and through pain cant do a lot. My cp is my outlet and I have made a number of christian friends overseas and would like to continue to talk with them. I guess I was lucky to be able to make friends online, the way it is. But now its hard to do anything so I am playing games. My cp is and has been checked over and over by different techs. 2 of them from telstra shops.I would like you to help me to stay online properly.
