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.

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.
