Re: Smart modem gen 2.

The SIM is supposed to be a backup when the "normal" NBN or ADSL connection goes down. The speed is limited to 5/1 and is shaped even more when it is used more...
Telstra will detect if it is misused in the way you suggest and will shape you to a speed of dial up modem or even disconnect you completely and I would think it would be even in Testra's powers to sue you for breaching of T&Cs if they desired so...
So, the simple answer to your question is NO, IT IS NOT PORTABLE WAN device.
DISCLAIMER: I do not work for Telstra or any other ISP. I never did. I have wealth of practical knowledge in Computer Security and Forensic Computing. I have been in the field since 1985.
