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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
