Unwired unveils new data plan pricing scheme

A number of new mobile data plans introduced, including a 10GB plan at $39.95 per month. But there's a catch.

Unwired has introduced a new 10GB mobile data plan at the competetive price of $39.95 per month. Unfortunately, there's a catch.

The 10GB allowance is divided into two periods – peak and off-peak. The peak period lasts between 2pm and 2am, and each period is metered separately.

That means users will only be allocated 5GB of bandwidth during each period, and if they exceed that allocation in either traffic for that period will be shaped to 64kb for the rest of the month.

The $39.95 plan is also only available at speeds of 256kb/s. A 512kb plan is available with the same quota, but costs $10 extra.

Customers on existing subscription plans will be automatically upgraded to the new pricing schemes which most closely match their existing plans.

Unwired is also offering a $29.95 6GB plan and a $49.95 16GB plan at speeds of 256k/s, a $64.95 8GB plan at 512k/s and a $99.95 30G plan at 1024kb/s. But each plan uses the same peak/off peak model.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

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!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
