Well here is a post from a 3G wireless device from Telstra. I am quite surprised that at the speed. Posting from Port Elliot, South Australia. Even my mobile phone can be variable from here so it seems to GSM mobile or the dreaded dialup. Telstra is unfortunately the most expensive telco on Australia however they do have exceptional coverage. I guess you get what you pay for. At least I am not dependent on it for my main internet connection.
