I’ve just signed up to the new Telstra Air and will be updating this blog on my findings
It sounds like a great way to have internet on the go
I have a 4G wifi that I use at this time but I’m hoping to be able to stop this service if Telstra Air is a success
Telstra Air is available at phone boxes throughout Australia
Here’s a few snippets from Telstra’s website
About Telstra Air
As we work to give you easier access to Wi-Fi, our Telstra Air Network™ is growing. As a Telstra Air member, you can use your Telstra home broadband allowance at thousands of hotspots across Australia. But we’re not stopping there.Thanks to our partnership with Fon you can access your Telstra home broadband allowance at over 15 million Fon Spots overseas.
More from your data
Telstra Air will share a portion of your home Wi-Fi connection to create a hotspot that others can use. When you’re out, you can access Telstra Air hotspots using your home broadband allowance to give you more connection options. You’ll get a lot when you share a little.
Connect to Telstra Air
Once you’ve become a member of Telstra Air, you can get online using your Telstra home broadband allowance when you’re out and about, using your Wi-Fi enabled laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Don’t forget to download the Telstra Air App so that you’ll be able to automatically connect to your nearest Telstra Air hotspot in Australia or Fon Spot when you’re travelling overseas.
Overseas you can still use your own Internet
Fon is a global Wi-Fi network, and we’re their exclusive Australian partner. Like Telstra Air, Fon members share a bit of their home Wi-Fi, and in turn, get access at millions of Fon Spots in countries like the UK, Japan, Germany, South Africa and France.
Before you take off to your next destination, download the Telstra Air App to your iOS or Android device to connect automatically to Fon Spots
My new router arrived today which was very quick delivery from Telstra
I installed the router fine but it took a bit longer than I expected to get the internet back online
I was on the phone with Telstra and I was going to change to back to my old router when It came good
Setup my wifi added my own wifi keys and ready for action
I searched for hotspots while waiting for my son at school but none to be found which was a shame
I guess it’s going to take time
I’ll add more info of my findings soon…
