Yomojo Home Wireless Broadband

Advertisement

If you’ve been looking for a good NBN alternative, home wireless broadband may be the one for you. Home wireless uses 3G, 4G and (if you’re lucky) 5G networks to give you home internet without the need for the fixed-line connection you get with ADSL or NBN. It’s just like accessing the mobile network of your provider from your phone, but with home wireless the SIM card is placed in a modem that can sit in your kitchen or living room, or anywhere else you want it.

NBN is still the most common type of home internet in Australia, but there are now a handful of big and small providers offering home wireless broadband. These include Yomojo – the small and bright orange telco best-known for its SIM-only phone plans. Well, it’s now a big player in home wireless, so read on for all the details you need on home internet with Yomojo.

How much does Yomojo home wireless broadband cost?

Yomojo offers two home wireless broadband plans without any contracts, but you’ll need to pay for a new modem at the checkout. The first plan is priced at just $59.90 per month for 200GB of data (minimum cost $238.90 over one month) and the other is $79.90 per month for 500GB of data (minimum cost $258.90 over one month).

Both plans come with a $179 Netcomm modem, which you’ll have to pay for upfront. If you’re interested in either of these plans, check out the table below.

What do you need for home wireless broadband?

You’ll need a SIM card, which is delivered by your service provider, and a wireless broadband capable modem, which in Yomojo’s case is supplied for an outright fee of $179. All you’ll need to do is plug your modem into a power point, put the SIM card into your modem, and you should be good to go.

Home wireless isn’t intended to be a portable internet solution, but you can move your modem to anywhere in your home, or even take it on holiday, provided you have network coverage where you go.

What network does Yomojo home wireless use?

Yomojo uses the Optus 4G Plus network for its home wireless broadband plans, as it doesn’t own a network itself. You’ll find that all small home wireless providers will use networks owned by either Vodafone, Telstra or Optus for this reason. The good news for Yomojo customers is that the tiny telco should soon be getting access to the Optus 5G network, after Optus confirmed its plans to open up the new generation technology to smaller carriers.

How fast is Yomojo home wireless broadband?

It’s realistic to expect download speeds of at least 12Mbps, similar to the lowest NBN tier, Basic NBN 12. Real-world results will vary, depending on the technology and signal strength of where your home is. Theoretically, 100Mbps is possible, but it’s probably more reasonable to expect a speed around 12-25Mbps. Yomojo doesn’t currently offer 5G home wireless broadband, which can theoretically reach speeds up to 1000Mbps, although some providers do offer this service.

If you’re trying to work out how fast home wireless broadband on the Optus network will be at your place, try conducting a speed test on your mobile phone (if your phone plan is also on the Optus network) because you can expect pretty much the same results.
