Australian carriers offer broadband in Singapore

The alliance was signed between Davnet and Harmony Telecommunications, a joint venture formed in April between Telstra and DataOne Asia. Both Davnet's Singapore subsidiary and Harmony were granted facilities-based operator (FBO) licenses to offer telecommunications services in Singapore when the market was fully liberalised.

The alliance will offer building owners and business users in Singapore a suite of communications services including voice, data, video and multimedia, Davnet said.

The two sides will jointly market each other's products and services, which include broadband and facilities management services, Web hosting, ASP (application service provider) offerings, voice and data networks and video streaming, Davnet said in the statement.

Davnet will contribute its experience in providing aggregated Internet, data, voice, and video high-bandwidth communications over a single socket in each office of a commercial building, the company said. Under the alliance, a number of leading properties such as Suntec City, one of Singapore's largest commercial complexes, will be targeted. Davnet Singapore recently completed the cabling of five office towers in Suntec City, Davnet said.

Telstra and Davnet have been the most active of the five new operators granted FBO licenses by Singapore's government. Telstra has stated it believes Singapore has potential as a domestic market and a regional communications hub.

The other three FBO licensees -- WorldCom and local companies Flag Telecom Singapore and SP Telecommunications, are yet to announce major development plans for the Singapore market.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
