BigPond launches Express Mobile Card on Next G network
BigPond Wireless Broadband on the Next G network now have a new way to get online, with today's launch of the BigPond Wireless Broadband Express Mobile Card.
The card is designed for laptops with a 34mm express card slot and is Mac and PC compatible.
It's the latest addition to BigPond's range of wireless internet access products which includes the BigPond Wireless Broadband Mobile (PCMCIA) Card and USB Mobile Card for people on the go, and the desktop Wireless Broadband Modem for customers who want the freedom to move their internet access between locations - like their home and office.
BigPond Group Managing Director, Mr Justin Milne said BigPond is committed to helping customers get connected to Australia's largest wireless network - whichever way suits them best.
"The freedom of BigPond Wireless Broadband and the speed and coverage of Telstra's Next G network are a winning combination," Mr Milne said.
"Now, people using a laptop with an express card slot can connect wirelessly to BigPond, whenever they're in our extensive network area, covering more than 98 per cent of the Australian population.
"The express card provides access to superfast plans, with download speeds on our Super G Fast plans averaging 550Kbps to 1.5Mbps, and peak network downlink speeds of up to 3.6Mbps.
"It is even sturdy enough to be left in a laptop while travelling, and roams to over 30 countries, making it easy to stay connected when you're on the move," Mr Milne said.
Customers with a Telstra full service fixed line can get online with BigPond Wireless Broadband access from $17.47 per month for the first six months on a 36 month contract.
Pricing plans for the Express Mobile Card match BigPond's current mobile card pricing, with an up-front cost of $299 for the device and a choice of plans based on time, speed or downloads.
All BigPond Wireless Broadband devices are Vista compatible.
