Hi All,

Can some one please recommend a good reliable vodem usb stick for the following purposes (ideally prepaid):

-Surf local (NZ) and International traffic
-Possibly use it for Skyping
-Day-to-day usage

I'd a look at 2Degrees/VF/Telecom. Not sure what is the best option.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Just to help with the terminology - you aren't asking for a "vodem" stick as such as that is vodafone branding.

I think people generally call them "3g USB stick". Not actually sure what the correct name is actually...!

Yup, Vodafone have all the cool words: Vodem, PXT ...

Pick up a device whish is at least HSPA+ 21mbps or if you want a bit of extra speed, a dual carrier one like john suggested. This will work on any network.

I suggest starting with Telecom's current special - their $29 1.5gb plan is doubled to 3gb which is good value. After this special stops, you can evaluate again whoever has the best speed/coverage/price for you.
