Today I switched over to Telstra and got the "Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2". The one made by Technicolor, the DJA0231 model.
Works so far only on "backup mode" - I think that is what they call if it is accessing the net via the 4G network and inbuilt SIM card as my fixed (copper) line apparently takes another 9 days to set up/switch on (in Melbourne!?!).
My experience is that over the past 8 hrs it dropped out already 3 times and needed a restart (don't know what else to do).
