AAPT offers 'unlimited' broadband downloads

Broadband plans start at $49.95 per month

AAPT today launched what it claims are Australia’s first ADSL2+ "unlimited" broadband download plans. The three AAPT LiveNet Unlimited plans include unmetered downloads between 2am and 8am EST.

AAPT says the plans are designed for Australian families that don't want to exceed their monthly download limit. The plans offer on-peak download limits of 20GB, 30GB and 60GB for $49.95, $69.95 and $99.95 per month, respectively.

Existing AAPT customers can switch to one of the plans without incurring exit penalties from their current contracts. According to AAPT's Tahn Shannon, the new plan ensures customers are never faced with "bill shock" for excess usage fees: "If they exceed their limit, we simply slow down their speed for the remainder of the billing cycle."

"An unlimited amount of content rich media such as TV programs, music or purchased movies can be downloaded off-peak, leaving a generous 20-50GB to use during peak-time hours," Shannon said.

As with AAPT's previous broadband plans, uploads will not be counted towards on-peak usage. The AAPT LiveNet Unlimited plans are available on a 24-month plan.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
