Described as a mobile broadband dashboard, Connect Me allows T-Stick users to manage 3G and Wi-Fi connections from their desktops.
It offers quick access to view online usage and top up pages, usage alert SMS and management of computer connections, via a free download.
Users must have a compatible T-Stick (list of compatible devices can be found here).

According to the Connect Me page on Telecom's website, there are a few things to know before downloading:
- The file size is 32MB. The download is free so will not be included as part of your Mobile Broadband allowance.
- Connect Me will work if you have a compatible Telecom T-Stick.
- Connect Me is currently only available for Windows PC users running Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista SP1, or Windows 7 SP0 or above.
- It's best to uninstall the old connection Manager or 3G Watcher software before you install Connect Me. You can find help on installing Connect Me here.
