Wireless broadband from $79.95

Wireless broadband looks within reach of the mass market, as Veritel on Friday launched plans starting at $79.95 per month.

The ISP has three plans, based on iBurst broadband, which offer wireless Internet access wherever there is iBurst coverage.

Coverage currently focuses on the Sydney metro area, but will expand to Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra this year.

Veritel’s managing director, Ivan Hurwitz, said he expected the new plans to significantly grow the subscriber base of wireless broadband in Australia.

The entry level $79.95 plan, Freedom eXpress, delivers wireless broadband at 1Mbps for 200MB of data. Once users exceed 200MB, access speed may drop to 64Kbps.

The $99.95 Freedom eXplorer plan provides 400MB of data, after which speeds can drop to 256Kbps during peak traffic times.

The Freedom eXtreme plan, at $174.95, provides 1GB of data with no rate shaping.

The iBurst technology, developed by US company Arraycom, uses smart antenna technology to deliver IP-based Internet services across the 5GHz unpaired radio spectrum band. The network promises end users download speeds of up to 1Mbps.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
