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.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
