Optus increases prepaid value as 4G Plus network grows

The extras will run for a limited time only

More data and unlimited weekend calls are the big benefits of Optus’ revised prepaid plans as the carrier endeavours to promote the benefits of its expanding 4G network.

The introductory $30 recharge has fares best with a doubled data allowance to 1GB and the introduction of unlimited weekend calls to anyone in Australia. The $30 plan will continue to offer 350 minutes for national phone calls during week days.

The $45 and $60 recharges benefit from 1GB of additional data. This brings the plans’ total data allowance to 3GB and 6GB respectively.

No change has been made to national call quotas as the $45 and $60 plans already include an unlimited allowance, while all three plans offer unlimited national texting.

The New My Prepaid Monthly plan will be offered for a limited time until 19 April 2015, though customers who sign up before then will keep the benefits for the life of their plan.

The revisions will help Optus promote its 4G Plus network, which is planned to cover 90 per cent of the Australian population by April.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

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.

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.
