AusBBS introduces SOHO NBN plans

$100 and $155 plans announced alongside $70 unbundled packs, services optional

Locally-owned startup, Australian Broadband Services (AuSBBS), is targeting small businesses with new National Broadband Network (NBN) plans priced at $100 and $155 per month.

The former, named NBN small office/home office (SOHO) Basic, promises up to 25 megabit per second (Mbps) download speed (equivalent to 3.125 megabytes per second), and a 10Mbps upload rate (or 1.25MBps).

The NBN SOHO Premium option claims speed up to 100Mbps (12.5MBps) down and 40Mbps (5MBps) up speed. Both plans include SOHO voice and static IP.

Clients also have access to unbundled data packs which start at $70 (including static IPs).

Optional extras include hosted firewalls, netflow monitoring, hosted PBX, VPNs< DNS, email management, IP blocks, and first-level business-grade support.

AusBBS chief executive officer (CEO), Rob Appel, said the SOHO market “is set to be one of the main beneficiaries of the NBN roll out with access to industrial grade speeds. Telecommuting is a huge growth area for SOHO and staff working from home need the speed stability and extra services that these plans offer.”

Appel also said AusBBS intends to offer plans for data-intense business and corporate customers once NBN Co implements additional speed tiers of 250Mbps and higher in December.

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.
