Terria to nip Telstra heels

G9 takes on official name

The Optus-led group of nine (G9) Consortium has today rebranded itself as Terria.

The name, derived from 'Terria Australis' (unknown land of the South), formalises the consortium's structure after the appointment of former Soul executive Michael Simmons as managing director and previous NSW treasurer Micheal Egan as chairman.

"We like the fact that [the name] is phonetically the same as terrier which hints at the energy and tenacity which will be needed to win the best communication outcome," Egan said.

IiNet chief regulatory officer Stephen Dalby said it was time for the group to operate under a formal title.

The former G9 name was created by the media, and remained after the group was reduced two eight members, following the acquisition of PowerTel by AAPT.

Terria members include Optus, iiNet, Internode, AAPT, Macquarie Telecom, Primus, TransACT and Soul.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
