eisa commits $150m to Internet capacity

Melbourne Internet service provider, eisa, is investing $150 million over the next 15 years to increase its Internet capacity.

The investment, partly involving an agreement with Southern Cross Cable Network, is expected to increase eisa's Internet capacity by up to 20 times, officials said.

Under the capacity use agreement, eisa will directly own cable capacity on the network, officials said.

Eisa's current 90Mbps Internet capacity will increase to 620Mbps when the network comes online next year.

The Southern Cross Cable network is the largest and most direct link from Sydney and New Zealand to the US. Investors include AAPT, OzEmail, Telstra, Primus and WorldxChange.

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.
