ispONE files urgent Federal Court application

Courth hearing today to request stopping prepaid service terminations

Telstra wholesaler, ispONE, has filed an urgent application with the Federal Court seeking to restrain Telstra from terminating the supply of prepaid mobile services to ispONE.

A hearing is expected today by a Federal Court judge.

The wholesaler on-supplies Telstra prepaid services through more than 100 retailers to over 280,000 consumers of fixed line, mobile phone, and Internet services.

According to a statement from ispONE, Telstra claims it has a right to terminate the services due to the failure by ispONE to pay invoices issues by the telco by their due date.

ispONE on the other hand claims that no amount is presently due and payable, and alleges Telstra owes it money based on the telco’s incorrect rating of data pricing for prepaid mobile services.

In addition, the wholsesaler asserts that Telstra has allegedly breached its agreement with ispONE, and allegedly engaged in misleading, deceptive and unconscionable conduct.

It also claims an entitlement to damages based on the significant problems experienced with Telstra’s mobile prepaid platform, which, according to ispONE, earlier this year left many consumers without service as there were delays in porting numbers to Telstra.

The statement also states ispONE has been “acting swiftly to attempt to affect a resolution of its issue with Telstra” in order to mitigate any termination, and has issued the Court application as these attempts have been unsuccessful.

A Telstra spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment.

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.
