Looking for the best mobile plan can take time and often involves many considerations.

Aspects like price and type of handset may not be as important for users these days - issues like functionality and connectivity are becoming more of a focus, with regular technological advances allowing greater usage options as time goes on.

The onset of Wi-Fi and mobile browser applications has opened the market up to new devices like smartphones which can be connected to the internet - and other users - anytime, anywhere.

And now, into this market comes Telstra with its newest Wi-Fi 4G devices.

The Telstra Mobile Wi-Fi 4G is now available to business clients, and the Big Pond Mobile Wi-Fi 4G service for personal use will be launched on March 27.

Both devices allow connection of up to five users of Wi-Fi-enabled gadgets simultaneously, and offer the fast download and upload speeds that the 4G network offers.

Telstra Mobile director Anthea Roberts said there had been an increase in on-the-go connectivity demand from customers.

"Australians now take a range of Wi-Fi enabled devices with them when they're outside the home and office and for many of our customers the Telstra Mobile Wi-Fi is the 4G product they’ve been waiting for.

"It gives them the chance to bring Australia's fastest mobile internet speed to their existing tablets, laptops, portable games consoles and smartphones."
