Telecom New Zealand introduces small USB mobile data modem with memory reader
New Zealandís smallest 3G broadband modem has arrived with Telecomís launch of the T-Stick. At just under 8cm long and 1cm thick the T-Stick packs a CDMA EV-DO modem and memory card reader.

The T-Stick will be available from NZ$49.00 on a 24 month 1GB+ Plan and provide connection to Telecomís 3G mobile broadband network, based on the CDMA EVDO standard.

Telecom GM Mobile, Martin Butler says the T-Stick will make broadband on the move easier and more affordable than ever.

ďThe T-Stick is entirely plug and play. It doesnít require an installation disk, just take it out of the box, plug it into your laptop USB port and it will automatically start the install process.

The T-Stick has a memory card slot and comes with a 1GB Micro SD memory card for ultra-portable file storage. The T-Stick works on both PCs and Apple Macs out of the box.

To prevent unwanted surprise bills customers signing up for the T-Stick are registered for usage alerts that will let them know how much data they have used and when they are getting close to their data cap.

If new customers find that the T-Stick and mobile broadband is not best for their needs, they can take advantage of a 30 day money back guarantee offer.

Telecom New Zealandís 3G mobile broadband network was upgraded with rev a technology last year which means Telecomís cell sites have the ability to deliver average download speeds of 800Kbps and 300Kbps upload, resulting in an experience much closer to DSL broadband on customersí mobile devices.

The T-Stick has been designed and manufactured by Sierra Wireless, and Telecom is second only to US provider Sprint to launch the USB modem.
