AAPT launches unlimited ADSL2+ plans

Aussie ISP won't throttle or cap users, and includes home phone line rental

Australian Internet service provider AAPT has launched the country's first residential ADSL2+ broadband plans without a download quota.

The ISP's "Entertainment Bundle" costs $99.95 per month and includes unlimited downloads, as well as home phone line rental. The plan also includes a music pack which allows users to download $50 worth of music from AAPT's In Song online music store. Once a user has exhausted their $50 of credit, additional songs can be purchased from the store for $1.19 each.

Despite offering music downloads, AAPT CEO Paul Broad told GoodGearGuide's sister publication, Computerworld, that the [[Artnid:336266|ISP didn't want to become a content provider|Computerworld: Content not king for all ISPs: AAPT. “We are a telco, an enabler, we are not experts on content,” Broad said. “We try to do the things we do well, and we create the environment for others to come along and provide the content."

The Entertainment Bundle includes a free wireless modem router, but users must sign up for a 24-month contract. The minimum cost of the bundle over the 24-month period is $2398.80.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
