Netspace nets Netgear for ADSL modems

Netgear to supply high speed modems to ISP Netspace

ISP and telephony provider Netspace has inked an exclusive distribution deal with Netgear to supply ADSL/ADSL2/2+ modems for its consumer market.

Netspace spokesperson, Ben Dunscombe, said the company turned to Netgear because they were a leader in modem product suites and had been amongst the top sellers in the retail space.

He said discussions about a partnership had been brewing slowly for a couple of years, but were reinvigorated when Netgear approached them at the start of the year.

"We ship tens of thousands of units over the period of a year and it is vital for us to have the unit robust and reliable. In the absence of that, there is an inflated level of support calls".

Netgear has provided technical and customer service training to the 70 odd Netspace support staff to supplement their existing knowledge base concerning the Netgear modems, said Dunscombe.

The modems will be bundled with Netspace's internet services. Dunscombe said no introductory sales campaign was planned to accompany the new deal.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
