Internode transfers Telstra numbers to NodePhone

ISP says that the option will see more customers moving to naked broadband

Australian Broadband provider Internode this week launched a service that allows customers to keep their existing phone number when migrating to Naked ADSL2+ broadband plans.

The new porting service is called 'Local Number Portability' and is only available for customers who want to sign up for Internode's VoIP service, NodePhone. You also need to have an existing Telstra analog telephone service and pay an additional fee of $29.95.

Internode says only the metro areas of Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney will be serviced for the time being but the ISP already has plans to extend the service to business customers and customers of other phone service providers.

"Being able to keep their existing phone number overcomes a barrier to people adopting Naked ADSL2+," said Internode product manager Phil Dempster.

Dempster also predicted that many National Broadband Network customers would ditch their telephone line rental. "We also think it will appeal to NBN customers who are so happy with their fibre-based broadband service that they decide to get rid of the monthly cost of renting a separate telephone line."

Dempster stated that customers would need to have the right equipment to use the NodePhone service. "This can be one of our VoIP-capable routers, a standard router with a Siemens Gigaset handset or the customer's own NodePhone-supported VoIP hardware."

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.

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.
