Dongle Backup for NBN

We recently had the NBN connected, and we use a Netgear V7610 supplied by Telstra to connect. It's the same modem we previously used for Telstra ADSL2.


Attached to the modem is a Huawei Mobile Broadband dongle that used to kick in whenever the ADSL wasn't working. I think it used 4G. However, the dongle doesn't work now that we have changed to NBN.


Is there a way we can still get the a backup for when the NBN isn't working?


I've tried contacting Telstra support but it's really useless even bothering with them at the moment.
