If you’re ever out and about looking to quickly “do something” on your laptop but can’t find a free public Wi-fi network, you’re not alone. Carrying hardware to run your own Wi-fi hotspot and purchasing the data to run it can be cost prohibitive, but there’s a solution today for those of us on a budget.
Harvey Norman is clearing out Optus Wi-fi hotspot products – both a Pre-Paid Portable Modem (a Huawei E5251) for a dirt cheap $10, and a USB Portable Modem (a Huawei E3351) that includes a SIM with 2GB of data for a whopping $5.
The devices are limited to 1 per customer which, at that price, is hardly surprising.
If you’re keen for the bargain, head to your local Harvey Norman store.
