Change 3G modem to 4G

Answered

I have a ongoing Mobile Super G Liberty xxGb plan with telstra. Currently i am using an nextg ultimate modem which is 3g. The local tower has been upgraded to 4g and i wish to upgrade my modem to connect with 4g. I do NOT want to change my plan as i live in a rural area and it is the best plan i can get for the price. Can i simply upgrade my modem to an advanced II modem and use my existing sim in it to connect to bigpond and have my wifi devices connect as i do now?. My wifi network consists of two samsung tablets, a laptop and a desktop which all connect to the existing modem. If this is possible where can i purchase an advanced II modem, and does it / should it have to be from telstra/bigpond?

Recon you're on the money.. Buy your device stick in the SIM, set it up with the appropriate APN (telstra.wap) and off you go on the 4G network.
