AAPT launches unlimited ADSL2+ plans

Aussie ISP won't throttle or cap users, and includes home phone line rental

Australian Internet service provider AAPT has launched the country's first residential ADSL2+ broadband plans without a download quota.

The ISP's "Entertainment Bundle" costs $99.95 per month and includes unlimited downloads, as well as home phone line rental. The plan also includes a music pack which allows users to download $50 worth of music from AAPT's In Song online music store. Once a user has exhausted their $50 of credit, additional songs can be purchased from the store for $1.19 each.

Despite offering music downloads, AAPT CEO Paul Broad told GoodGearGuide's sister publication, Computerworld, that the [[Artnid:336266|ISP didn't want to become a content provider|Computerworld: Content not king for all ISPs: AAPT. “We are a telco, an enabler, we are not experts on content,” Broad said. “We try to do the things we do well, and we create the environment for others to come along and provide the content."

The Entertainment Bundle includes a free wireless modem router, but users must sign up for a 24-month contract. The minimum cost of the bundle over the 24-month period is $2398.80.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

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.
