Renting a local personal hot-spot and cell phone in Australia/NZ?

Jump to last reply

We are 2 couples going to Australia in December for 3 weeks. We're hoping to avoid enormous voice and data international roaming charges while visiting Australia and NZ. (We are Americans with iphones/AT&T).

Has anyone had any luck finding a local prepaid wifi and cell or any other viable alternative to roaming while in this part of the world?

Does anyone have any experience with these outfits:

Any suggestions and recommendations are much appreciated!
