Optus to offer broadband "summer treat"

Optus will now offer its prime customers extra data downloads during off-peak hours as a "summer treat" in an offer extending until February 28.

Through the offer, all data downloaded between 2am and 8am will be unlimited and not contribute to the customer's monthly data allowance.

The offer applies to both Cable and DSL customers who are on the Unlimited and Unlimited Pro plans. Both these plans target users with large download requirements. The Unlimited plan is scaled back to dial-up speeds once 12GB has been downloaded and the Unlimited Pro is scaled back once 20GB has reached.

This offer joins other existing Optus offers. This includes a free broadband installation with any Optus Home Phone package and a bundled reward scheme offering customers who take up an Optus voice product up to four months free broadband access every year.

The offer also joins other ISP's that are offering discounts or packages in an attempt to lure Christmas customers.

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.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

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

Jack Jeffries


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.

Taylor Carr


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.
