BigAir lifts FY11 ebitda forecast

Fixed WiMax operator BigAir (ASX:BGL) has raised its FY11 ebitda forecast to $5.2 million from $4 million, after achieving strong growth for the month of March

Fixed WiMax operator, BigAir (ASX:BGL), has upgraded its FY11 ebitda guidance by 30 per cent on the strength of its performance so far.

The company - which operates a network covering Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Cost, Adelaide and Perth - now expects to post a full-year underlying ebitda of $5.2 million.

This would be a 63 per cent increase on the company's FY10 ebitda of $3.2 million.

BigAir said its consolidated revenues surpassed $1.9 million for the month of March, with $1.4 million earned by the fixed wireless division and the remainder from its student accommodation unit.

Underlying ebtida for March likewise reached $625,000, representing an annualised run rate of $7.5 million.

The company also expects to achieve more savings from the restructuring and integration of its recent acquisitions, including Clever Communications and AccessPlus.

BigAir estimated that a further $1.6 million in annualised cost savings will be realised over the next 12 to 18 months.

BGL shares fell 2.7 per cent during Friday's trading to $0.180.

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.
