Mobile internet for my laptop

Hi all - I am just looking for some advice regarding Telstra services, and how best I can use it to get mobile internet access from my laptop.


I will basically be purchasing a new laptop shortly, which will also have an in-build Cellular capability via Sim Card.  I run a small business which will require regular access to the internet via my mobile, during various times of the day.  I will likely be travelling alot - mainly nationally within Austraila but also potentially intenationally.


I was wondering what is the best way I can use the internet via my new laptop using Telstra services.  I already have a monthly plan with Telstra for around $115 per month for my phone, which has 60GB data included.  I am basically looking for a fast speed internet connection while I am away from Wi-fi, in a hotel room, in another country etc.


Is there a cellular sim card Telstra can supply which I can put into my laptop, is there a 4G USD card I can insert to my laptop, and any other options?  If someone could direct me to the options and make a recommendation it would be good - I basically want to remain connected at all times and get snappy access wherever I am


Thank you.

BYO data only plans would be your best bet.
