Wireless broadband rental with a Spin

Spin Internet Services is taking its wares to road-warriors with a new broadband rental program

On the back of launching its iBurst wireless broadband service in August, Spin Internet Services is taking its wares to road-warriors with a new broadband rental program.

At $59.95 per week, the rent-a-wireless-broadband-service provides users with 1GB of data with downstream and upstream speeds of 1Mbps and 345Kbps respectively. Data downloads that exceed the weekly 1GB allowance are charged at 50 cents a megabyte.

The service is on a strict week-by-week rental basis, so users incur no contractual lock-ins or sign-up fees. However, customers are required to meet a $300 security hardware deposit and a $20 there-and-back delivery fee for the iBurst wireless broadband card. A stalwart late return fee will set customers back $25 per day.

"Spin's rental program is perfect for the traveling business user or conference attendee as it saves them from looking for hotspots or succumbing to expensive hotel broadband," Spin Internet marketing manager, Bill McArthur said. "We have really hit the perfect niche for road-warriors everywhere."

As the service operates on iBurst's wireless network, coverage is available in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra and the Gold Coast. Perth and Adelaide are expected to be online by the end of the year.

Wiredsky offer a similar wireless broadband rental scheme, but McArthur believes Spin's price points are "significantly lower" and offer more data.

Although no alternative plans are available, McArthur said Spin would assess future plans based on demand.

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.
