Cut-price internet service provider Exetel will begin offering access to Optus' 4G LTE mobile network in approximately two weeks, according to the ISP's sales staff.
The ISP began pre-orders for 4G services in late September. The ISP is offering three 4G plans, starting at $39.95 for 10GB of data on a 12-month plan. The other plans offer 15GB or 20GB of data for $59.95 or $79.95 respectively on 12-month contracts. Both uploads and downloads are counted.
Exetel is selling the 4G-capable Huawei E3276 USB Modem to customers for $199 (the ISP is offering the modem for $0 for pre-orders; see comment #1 below). The ISP has said it will unveil 4G voice plans this week.
In September iiNet announced that it would offer 4G services on Optus' network.
Optus, Vodafone and Telstra are all investing billions in building 4G networks. All three telcos are employing LTE technology for their 4G rollouts.
