Hi Nick,

Not sure what other options are out there, but I recently acquired a used Telstra 4GX USB dongle (AirCard AC112) with the relevant Netgear router (https://www.ebay.com.au/p/NETGEAR-AirCard-Smart-Cradle-Dc112a-for-ATT-779s/12031245313?iid=332057670050) as I needed USB compatibility for almost the same reason, and it works well (USB as opposed to Ethernet).

Might with worth a look.

Subject: [AusNOG] 3/4G modem sms

We've been using a huawei e160 in a pc for sending alerts sms's, now we need to replace it since telstra are no longer giving us 3G on 2100, only 900, this stick is "e" version, so only 850, no good to us.
Everything around at present seems to be the new all in one wifi 4G wonders that work as ethernet, which it is what we dont want since it cant be used for our purposes, or certainly not easily, has anyone got any suggestions on the true modem type 4G sticks, or even cheap 3G that works on 900 if its 20 bucks dirt cheap since I'm told telstra will likely in 2020 be shutting down its 3G network completely.
