Primus customers get global hotspots

Primus is teaming up with iPass to offer customers access to more than 1000 wireless hotspots around the world.

The telco claims its deal with an enterprise connectivity service provider is the first of its kind in Australia.

“Telstra did a similar thing recently but you can’t ring them and buy a service,” Primus’ general manager of product development, Campbell Sallabank, claimed.

The agreement will enable roaming wireless access at selected airports, hotels and convention centres - such as the London Underground and Shanghai Airport - in 17 countries including Belgium, Japan, Malaysia and Switzerland.

“The number of hotspots could reach 10,000 within months if their dial-up model is anything to go by.”

Primus customers can currently access more than 50 wireless hotspots around Australia on the Azure network.

iPass provides its services by aggregating from other companies and uses Primus infrastructure in the Australian market.

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.

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

MSI GS75

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.

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.
