This will enable some eligible Telstra customers to use the Air service wherever there are hotspots. This of course means more reliable internet access, but not necessarily faster. In order to use the service, Telstra customers will be able to download the Air application on their smart phones/tablets. If you are not a Telstra customer, you can purchase access to the Air service.
If you have a Telstra modem/router for your internet connection at home, you have an option to opt-in to be a provider of the Air network. This brings us to talk about the subject of internet availability in Australia. If you have ever rented a home, you will know how painful it is to apply for a new internet connection and wait a few weeks for your internet to become active, only to find out that your lease wont be renewed. Well, Telstra Air could be your answer – if your neighbours have Air activated on their modem. Internet accessibility and access has become easier! The details are still not clear about what benefits you will get for having Telstra Air activated on your modem, but I am sure there will be incentive.
