Vodafone launches prepaid mobile broadband

Vodafone Australia has announced the launch of a prepaid mobile broadband service, following the lead of rival carriers Telstra, Optus and 3 Mobile.

The Vodafone prepaid service will be sold as a $149 starter pack, which includes a slimline Internet stick, a mobile broadband–enabled SIM card and 500MB of data.

Vodafone's prepaid service can be recharged in the same manner you recharge a prepaid mobile phone service. A number of recharge plans are available, including $19 for 500MB of data, $29 for 1GB and $49 for 3GB.

Customers who recharge within 30 days can have up to 5GB of their unused data rolled over into the next month.

"Vodafone’s Prepaid Mobile Broadband service is stress-free connectivity", said Helen Tuffy of Vodafone Australia. "Users will have complete control over how much money they spend with the benefits of plug-and-play mobile Internet."

Vodafone prepaid customers can recharge their mobile broadband accounts with a credit card online at www.vodafone.com.au or at any Vodafone retail store.

Vodafone is offering customers who connect before June 30 a bonus 2GB data allowance (rather than the standard 500MB) when they purchase the starter pack.

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.

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!

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.
