Woolworths and Telstra partner on new mobile service

Re-enters the MVNO space following its partnership with Optus

Woolworths will re-enter the mobile space as a mobile virtual network operator on parts of Telstra’s 3G network.

The two companies signed a wholesale agreement allowing Woolworths to resell parts of Telstra’s network using the 850MHz and 2100MHz spectrum bands.

These 3G bands cover 98.5 per cent of the Australian population with reception.

The service will likely rival that offered by supermarket chain Aldi, which is also an MVNO using the Telstra network.

Woolworths previously offered mobile services on the Optus network until the carrier chose not to renew the agreement.

Details on Woolworths’ services and pricing are expected to be revealed in “the coming weeks”.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

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.
