Does anyone know of or recommend a wifi service in Australia that is similar to CafeNet?

I appreciate that there are telco's pushing wifi same as Telecom/Vodafone, but these are monthly-based fee services.

I also know that many cyber-cafes/restaurants offer wifi at hourly rates, but I'm looking for a system like CafeNet where time and/or data can be pre-purchased (online) and you simply log in from wherever they are located.

Is there such a thing as pay-as-you-go wireless broadband in Australia?

Telstra, Optus and Azure all have hotspots around Australia. Azure offers the best pricing at A$6.60 per hour (min 2 hour puchase). I'm off to oz for two weeks on Monday and plan to use Azure.

Both Optus and Telstra offer WiFi Hotspots in cafes, libraries, and other places - and you can buy prepaid vouchers for these or pay on the spot with a credit card - buying per hour or day...
