I have been looking through the Spark web site and I cannot find the 3G/4G USB modem any more. On trademe there are a couple of listings of Telecom T stick which are obviously quite old given they are labelled Telecom rather than Spark. Do they still work?

What I am trying to do is to have prepay mobile broadband while staying at a beach house we have access to. As we do not go there often enough we cannot justify paying for regular broadband, and we thought prepay mobile broadband on a USB modem so it can be shared via a wifi router would be the way to go.

Vodafone reception is poor there so Spark is really the only option.

Why not just a hotspot?




much of the market have headed this way.


more often than not, hotspots still support USB connections, just cable between it and PC and your good.






Tsticks do work, likely will only be 3G though.
