Australian operator Telstra has announced 4G LTE mobile Wi-Fi set for its customers to provide high speed mobile internet access for Wi-Fi enabled laptops, tablets and smartphones. The battery-powered Telstra Mobile Wi-Fi 4G is now available to business customers and the BigPond Mobile Wi-Fi 4G will be launched for personal use next Tuesday 27 March. With these Wi-Fi sets customers can share an Telstra 4G LTE network connection with up to five devices simultaneously.

The Telstra Mobile Wi-Fi 4G sports a sleek black design and a large LED display which provides useful information such as Wi-Fi name and password, signal strength, number of devices connected and battery level at a glance. It supports Wi-Fi standard N connectivity for advanced Wi-Fi throughput and range. It includes a handy audio alert that lets owners know when devices connect and disconnect from the Wi-Fi network, while a web-based control portal allows for the adjustment of network security and Wi-Fi range settings from an internet browser.
