Dodo launches 3TB ADSL2+ plan, commits to 'unlimited' NBN services

3TB offer to compete with rival 1TB plans

Dodo yesterday launched a three terabyte ADSL2+ broadband plan with no peak/off-peak split.

According to a Dodo press release, the 3TB plan is "a timely demonstration of Dodo's firm commitment to service delivery as the country prepares for the roll out of the NBN". Dodo "has committed to offering unlimited data services over the NBN".

Other ISPs have recently launched a range of 1TB data plans.

Dodo's 3TB plan has a base price of $39.85 per month. However, the plan must be bundled with a Dodo home phone line, starting from $29.90 per month with no included call credit. You can choose from no fixed contract term, which will carry a $99 setup fee, or sign a 12 ($69 setup fee) or 24 (no setup fee) month contract. The price only applies to metro areas.

"We are the only provider to offer a national unshaped ADSL2+ unlimited plan, and the release of our new ADSL 2+ 3TB plan simply highlights just how far in front Dodo is when compared to the hype of its competitors' 1TB plans," Dodo CEO Larry Kestelman said.

"We are the only provider to do so and were the first to offer an unlimited ADSL plan. There's no need for consumers to worry about peak and off-peak limits if they wish to use a substantial amount of data. Dodo can offer this protection through its new unlimited and 3TB plans."

In August the ISP launched an unlimited broadband plan, which costs 5c more per month.

No not shaped, but i expect that they are 'throttled' based on 'service' type just like every dodo plan including mine. Ah and why is it i pay wireless/3g 40$/3gb(best 149$/15gb) @ 128kbyte (with dodo) and adsl2 metro 40$/3000gb @ 2000kbyte

I just got on this plan last month and in my 1st month I have downloaded/uploaded around 150 gb and i now seem to be throttled as of last couple of days i can never download faster than 80KB/s when last week i would get 600KB/s and nothing has changed at my end. Dodo will never change they don't like their customers using the service that they are paying for to its full capability.

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.
