Vodafone is offering its customers unlimited international calls in the coming weekend to celebrate its 21st birthday in Australia.

Postpaid and prepaid Vodafone customers will be able to call 10 overseas locations from 12.01am on Saturday 18 October, to 11.59pm on Sunday 19 October.

Calls can be made to landlines or mobiles in China, India, USA, UK, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong and South Korea.

“On behalf of Vodafone, I would like to thank our customers for their loyalty. We have many customers who have been with us for the majority of our 21 years in Australia,” said chief executive Iñaki Berroeta.

“Because so many of us have friends and family living and travelling overseas, we thought this was a great way to celebrate by doing what Vodafone does best – connecting people.”

Vodafone built its first mobile tower in Australia in 1993. The telco has since invested “around $13 billion” in growing the company to Australia’s third largest mobile carrier.

The telco employs 3,500 people in Australia, and is the second largest private employer in Tasmania. The company plans on doubling its 1,000 large Tasmanian contact centre following an announcement made last year.

Vodafone Australia is part of the Vodafone Group, the second largest mobile telecommunications operator with 434 million customers worldwide.

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.
