Telstra has unveiled a new lightweight wireless modem that can achieve a maximum download speed of 42Mbps, with typical speeds of 20Mbps in major cities around Australia.
The new Telstra Ultimate USB modem will provide speeds up to twice as fast as the previous high speed Next G modem
“These new speeds are available across all capital city CBDs and selected metropolitan areas, associated airports and in more than 100 regional locations to match the areas of highest demand and will make the frustration of waiting around for files to download a thing of the past,” said Deena Shiff, Telstra’s Business Group Managing Director.
“Our customers have told us that they want higher speed mobile broadband so they can work more flexibly outside of the office and we are delighted to be the first in the world to offer these new blistering speeds.”

The Ultimate modem is the world’s first commercially available modem to use dual channel HSPA+, a technology that provides faster speeds through two connections.
Telstra’s Ultimate USB modem and plans are currently being made available to business and enterprise customers, but should be available to all other customers by the end of this year.
