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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
