ACMA report finds SMEs have keen interest in VoIP

More than half of rural Australia still reliant on dial-up Internet

Voice communication over the Internet is also assisting business productivity. Integrated voice and data networks often provide cost savings in addition to per call rates that are typically lower than fixed-line call rates.

The results are from the ACMA's ongoing Telecommunications Today research program about the take-up and use of telecommunications services in Australia.

The program is designed to assist ACMA in its role as industry regulator and is consistent with its regulatory responsibilities to provide information about the telecommunications industry. Information in the reports were drawn from a number of sources including a telephone survey of approximately 2,000 farmers across the major agronomic regions in Australia (the AgScan survey) conducted in October 2006 and April 2007.

This is in addition to: the Sensis Business Index telephone survey of 1,800 SMEs conducted between April 24 and May 31, 2007; the Roy Morgan Single Source survey of individual consumers aged over 14 years; and commissioned work from Woolcott Research, which undertook 12 focus group discussions of residential household consumers recruited from a random sample as well as quantitative research using 1,600 respondents.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
