One.Tel to become upwardly mobile

Previously, the telco, 70 per cent owned by Packer and Murdoch, paid Optus for access to its network infrastructure. From today, however, One.Tel will enjoy the use of its own GSM1800 network.

According to Lucent Technologies, the company One.Tel contracted to implement the network, the telco's expenditures for infrastructure and networking in Australia will exceed $1.1 billion.

Under the One.Tel contract, Lucent installed a wireless network in all Australian capital and major cities.

One.Tel said in an ASX statement earlier this year that the launch of its mobile network would be followed by wireless internet access services, including personalised, SIM card-based browser portals -- accessible from customers' wireless handsets.

In March, One.Tel won licences to operate GSM1800 in all capital and major Australian cities, after bidding $523 million for the spectrum.

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.

Jack Jeffries

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.
