Vodafone 4G goes live in Canberra

Accelerated LTE expansion to commence from March

Telecommunications provider, Vodafone, has switched on its 4G network in Canberra, more than eight months after its initial Australian launch in July last year.

The telco’s 4G now covers parts of Acton, Civic, Crace, Downer, Franklin, Greenway, Harrison, Latham, Lyneham, Mitchell, Reid, Tuggeranon, and Turner, marking the first stage of what it calls a “comprehensive LTE rollout in Canberra.”

A Vodafone spokesperson told ARN that today’s announcement “comes after switching on a significant amount of sites” although was unable to reveal further details as to the locations of the additions.

The spokesperson did reveal that the telco “will step up this rollout in the months ahead,” with accelerated 4G coverage expansion expected to occur from March.

Late last month Vodafone revealed it reached the one million device mark, attributing the growth to its high-quality, 1800MHz spectrum which chief marketing officer (CMO), Kim Clarke, claims is capable of managing large volumes of traffic while maintaining data speeds.

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.

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.
