Big Pond access prices slashed

Telstra has slashed the cost of Big Pond Internet access for its dialup and broadband services, in what it said was a response to customer demand.

The Big Pond Home service will be reduced by 20 per cent starting this Saturday. The cost of broadband access via Big Pond Advance has been reduced and a flat rate plan will be available in a similar billing system to that which was introduced by broadband competitor Optus@Home late last year. In addition, the Big Pond business offering will be reduced by 25 per cent.

Telstra's rural customers will also receive "huge benefits", the company said. Internet access for rural clients on the Big Pond Home Rural plan will be reduced by 40 per cent.

In announcing the reductions, managing director of Telstra's Online Services, John Rolland, said the big winners would be the company's customers.

Rolland denied claims that the price reductions were a reaction to the recent announcement that ISP eisa would buy OzEmail, thereby scuttling the telco's plans of taking over OzEmail itself.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
