Hello, I am about to live in a mobile home. We will be living and travelling through out NZ. I am a visual artist and I need to be able to upload and download video works. I am currently using a Huawei wireless broadband stick on a Telecom prepay sim at $30 for 1GB of data this is getting extremely expensive.
I have enquired with the major broadband providers to see if they have any other options but so far I have not been able to find anything. Most require a fixed line.
I was wondering if anyone knew any other solutions?
Have you looked at the Skinny Data sims which are only available from Harvey Normans. I think you can get 10GB for $120.00 with 6 months to use. I have the 2 degrees mobile broadband zone pack which is 12GB for $99.00 with 6 months to use. as this is only available in 2 degrees broadband zones and not when roaming on Vodafone its probably not going to be suitable though.
Using the Telecom Wifi hotspots is gonna be your cheapest option by far. $9.95 a month for 30GB @1GB per day. Not exactly completely mobile but they're spread fairly well throughout the country so you should never be too far away from one.
Sending (large amounts of) video via mobile broadband ain't gonna be cheap!
