The Telstra NextG prepaid thing from Dick Smith is $99 for the USB
modem and it includes 1Gb of data. It has no contract but the minimum
top up is $20, and if the modem doesn't get topped up in a six month
period then it gets deactivated. I don't know what reactivation
entails. There is also some issue about credit from a one month period
not rolling over to the next month unless you do a top up. These
details are from when I activated over the phone (need a driver's
license/passport/etc but no credit card) so you should read the
Telstra site in more detail:


Speed and connectivity has been great (in Brisbane at the moment).
