Telstra has today announced a partnership with Sydney's ANZ Stadium, which will see the telco provide wireless connectivity to the sporting and events venue for the next five years.

The deal sees Australia's number one telco become the exclusive technology partner for Wi-Fi and content distribution at ANZ Stadium.

Telstra says the first stage of the rollout will connect sponsor content to Wi-Fi devices throughout the venue, effectively allowing information, announcements and video content to be displayed to spectators.

Telstra's Enterprise & Government Media Practice Lead, Kathy-Anne McManus, said the partnership will create a new experience for ANZ spectators.

"This technology will further enhance ANZ Stadium’s reputation as one of the world’s great sports and entertainment venues."

"We’re proud to be introducing technology that will improve the customer experience when visiting ANZ Stadium, and ultimately allow fans to engage with IPTV and other online content."

Telstra says the Wi-Fi network at ANZ Stadium will be implemented "in the coming months".

It will be available to the public from the start of 2014 National Rugby League (NRL) season, which begins in March 2014.

ANZ Stadium was purpose built for the Sydney 2000 Olympic games and seats up to 83,500 spectators.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.

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.
