What is Home Wireless Broadband (HWBB)?
Home Wireless Broadband uses the Optus 3G/4G mobile network. This is for use within Australia and is as simple as plugging into power and receiving data in a flash! It is a simple solution to those in Optus mobile coverage areas that cannot get, or do not want, an nbn™ service
Southern Phone will provide an Optus approved modem either under a 24 month contract or as a once off purchase of $149.00. The SIM supplied with the modem must not be removed and will not work in any other device.
Speed on HWBB
Speeds are variable on the Optus 3G/4G mobile network and will depend on a number of factors including congestion, location, local conditions, hardware, software and general internet traffic.
If you exceed your included monthly allowance, you will automatically receive 10GB of extra data for $10.00 to use in Australia that month.
You’ll receive up to 50GB of extra data each month on a single billing account. If you use more than 50GB, we may continue to charge you at the same rates, restrict your data use or slow your speed to 256Kbps until the next billing period.
To monitor your monthly allowance, we recommend that you download the Huawei HILink Mobile phone app. Here you can set your monthly allowance limit which will then update in real time. In the app, you can also view how many devices are connected and how much data they are using and restrict them as necessary.
