The Huawei E3131 is available for $0 on a 24 month contract; or $69 on a 1 month contract.
This is a 'dual band' 3G device, operating at both 900 MHz and 2100 MHz for extended coverage. It supports 3G protocols for high speed download (HSDPA-21) & upload (HSUPA-5.7).
The modem simply connects to a USB interface on your laptop with the following specifications:
You can also connect these modems via USB to a suitable broadband router. The E3131 has been successfully tested with the FRITZ!Box routers. For other broadband routers, please check for compatibility with the manufacturer prior to purchase.
For customers requiring NodeMobile Data in areas of low 3G signal strength, we recommend the Panorama TCLIP2 3G Mobile Broadband Antenna. Detailed product information is available from the Panorama Antennas website.
Conveniently the antenna can be either desk mounted, or clipped to your laptop. Simple to use and remarkably effective, these antennas are only $29.95 (plus $10 delivery Australia-wide).
Internode also continues to support the ZTE MF652 and Huawei E169, E160E, E583C, & E1762 3G modems purchased by NodeMobile customers prior to the release of the latest generation of hardware.
We do not provide support for any other hardware used with a NodeMobile Data service.
Note that the Huawei E220 3G modem and E960 3G router are approved for connection; however Internode does not provide support for these devices. They do not operate at the 'regional' 3G frequency of 900 MHz, and so are not recommended for customers requiring high speed regional connectivity.
However if you have such a device, and the lack of regional high speed connections is not an issue, you can simply purchase a regular NodeMobile SIM for $10. A delivery charge of $5 applies, Australia-wide.
iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, etc) tethering is not currently supported on NodeMobile Data services.
