Optus fends off Foxtel triple play with discounted Internet bundles

Discounts unlimited broadband bundles by $25 a month

Optus will fend off Foxtel’s triple threat play by discounting its unlimited Internet packages by $25 a month.

Customers who bundle unlimited Optus Internet with a home phone, Samsung Galaxy S tablet or Fetch TV package will pay $90 a month over 2 years.

The defensive move increases Optus’ competitiveness as Foxtel enters the home phone and broadband market with the use of rival Telstra’s infrastructure.

Foxtel is bundling its standard Pay TV service with a home phone and 50GB of Internet from $90 a month.

Optus’ discounted packing runs for a limited time until 6 April and covers Internet delivered via Optus Cable, ADSL2+ or NBN Fibre.

New customers adding an Optus mobile phone will receive $10 off their bill each month as an additional incentive.

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
