Telstra (ASX:TLS) has released a new combination modem and router called the BigPond Elite Network Gateway.
The device uses Telstra’s Next G network and redistributes Internet connectivity to a selected number of computers and devices as a wireless router.
The Elite Network Gateway has embedded HSPA+ technology, which means no other equipment is necessary. According to the telco, the device can hit speeds of up to 8Mbps when in optimal capital city conditions.
Routing between computers and the router is performed via the built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi module, which is the latest wireless standard to be certified for consumer use.
The device has a recommended retail price of $399 from all Telstra shops and dealers and as part of all BigPond Internet plans.
