According to the ISP, the 1.2PB figure equates almost 16 years of high definition video content.

The number is nearly triple that of December 2012 during which data distribution amounted to about 435TB. In December 2011, it stood at about 100TB.

iiNet did not reveal the number of customers who use its CDN services.

The company uses its CDN to deliver unmetered content for its customers beyond monthly data quotas; done via iiNet TV with Fetch, Xbox Live, ABC iView, and more than 180 streamed radio stations and a number of commercial customers.

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.
