Australian carriers offer broadband in Singapore

The alliance was signed between Davnet and Harmony Telecommunications, a joint venture formed in April between Telstra and DataOne Asia. Both Davnet's Singapore subsidiary and Harmony were granted facilities-based operator (FBO) licenses to offer telecommunications services in Singapore when the market was fully liberalised.

The alliance will offer building owners and business users in Singapore a suite of communications services including voice, data, video and multimedia, Davnet said.

The two sides will jointly market each other's products and services, which include broadband and facilities management services, Web hosting, ASP (application service provider) offerings, voice and data networks and video streaming, Davnet said in the statement.

Davnet will contribute its experience in providing aggregated Internet, data, voice, and video high-bandwidth communications over a single socket in each office of a commercial building, the company said. Under the alliance, a number of leading properties such as Suntec City, one of Singapore's largest commercial complexes, will be targeted. Davnet Singapore recently completed the cabling of five office towers in Suntec City, Davnet said.

Telstra and Davnet have been the most active of the five new operators granted FBO licenses by Singapore's government. Telstra has stated it believes Singapore has potential as a domestic market and a regional communications hub.

The other three FBO licensees -- WorldCom and local companies Flag Telecom Singapore and SP Telecommunications, are yet to announce major development plans for the Singapore market.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

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.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

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.
