Telstra has today announced a partnership with Sydney's ANZ Stadium, which will see the telco provide wireless connectivity to the sporting and events venue for the next five years.

The deal sees Australia's number one telco become the exclusive technology partner for Wi-Fi and content distribution at ANZ Stadium.

Telstra says the first stage of the rollout will connect sponsor content to Wi-Fi devices throughout the venue, effectively allowing information, announcements and video content to be displayed to spectators.

Telstra's Enterprise & Government Media Practice Lead, Kathy-Anne McManus, said the partnership will create a new experience for ANZ spectators.

"This technology will further enhance ANZ Stadium’s reputation as one of the world’s great sports and entertainment venues."

"We’re proud to be introducing technology that will improve the customer experience when visiting ANZ Stadium, and ultimately allow fans to engage with IPTV and other online content."

Telstra says the Wi-Fi network at ANZ Stadium will be implemented "in the coming months".

It will be available to the public from the start of 2014 National Rugby League (NRL) season, which begins in March 2014.

ANZ Stadium was purpose built for the Sydney 2000 Olympic games and seats up to 83,500 spectators.

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
