At our current address we are extremely limited in terms of internet access. We cannot access cable or ADSL (from any provider) therefore our only option was 4G mobile broadband. The only service provider offering an unlimited mobile broadband service was vividwireless so we connected with them. We opted to buy the modem outright from Harvey Norman and get a month to month plan so we can leave when NBN rolls out. Speed is sufficient to stream Netflix most of the time, but we experience drop-outs during peak periods (most evenings after 6pm and more so on weekends). We've had no assistance with these outages from customer service and no credits applied to our account. We pay $80 per month for the service and because of a lack of alternatives we are at the mercy of our ISP. Having said that, we are at least grateful for the option of an unlimited plan, hence we have been vividwireless customers for over 12 months with no plans to change providers until NBN rolls out (fingers crossed!)

Vividwireless was a saviour. I was unable to secure an ADSL or ADSL2 port 12 months ago, researched options and found this great company. Pretty simple path to purchase - buy modem from Harvey Norman, take it home, set up takes 2 mins and then its all done. I got the second month free and also hooked my dad up to a 40GB plan and we both got an extra month free.

Very rarely have issues - if anything, its as simple as unplugging the modem from power and plugging back in. Very occasionally the speed gets sluggish around 5PM but i do live inner city melbourne and it is 4G.

All round - great service!

I have just successfully installed and running the vividwireless 4g internet, and I'm surprised to say the connection is faster than my old adsl2+ from TPG on the same location. I live about 600+meters away from the 4g tower at my local area and about 2km from the adsl2+ exchange.
On my adsl2+ I usually get a 6-8mbps download rate, while the vividwireless gives me a 10mbps.

Use this referral link and upon setting up the modem there will have a referral code section and if you enter 104398 you can get 1months free, works with any plan, unlimited plan, month to month, 24month contract.

code to receive free modem delivery instead of paying $10, expiring soon though.

TIP: sign up for the 24month contract and receive modem free, the contract early cancellation fee is never more expensive than the cost of the modem. so if you use 24months term you end up with a free modem, but if you used 1year which is 50%, then you only have to pay $100 dollar of the $200cost of modem for the cancellation.

PROS: Stable connection and fast speed
Best available for those that cannot get lined service to their home. I had to get this because local adsl ports are full.

CONS: More expensive compared to NBN/ADSL2
