Optus discounts unlimited Internet bundles, available from $95 a month

Unmetered access to Netflix with the ‘home entertainment’ bundle

Competition from broadband newcomer Foxtel has prompted Optus to discount its unlimited Internet bundles.

Optus is bundling unlimited broadband with a home phone or a Fetch TV package for $95 a month.

The latter bundle offers access to Netflix, which can be enjoyed without worrying about surplus data costs.

The $115 unlimited home bundle will combine both home phone and Fetch TV, while a $70 home basic bundle is available with Internet capped at 200GB and a metered home phone allowance.

All of Optus’ bundled plans are contracted over two years and all plans — sans for the top-tier unlimited home bundle offering — incur a $125 'start-up fee'.

Optus’ $95 hero plan represents a price drop of $20 per month. The discount follows a promotion that ran earlier this year, immediately after Foxtel entered the home broadband market.

Bundled broadband packages are growing in appeal as more devices rely on a home Internet networks. Household data usage in Australia has jumped 35 percent in the year ending December of 2014, according to figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

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.
