AAPT BECOMES FIRST MAJOR TELCO TO OFFER NO-LIMIT ADSL2+

BROADBAND… GOING, GOING, GONE


Sydney, 15 February 2010 – “We’ve done it,” AAPT’s Chief Executive Paul Broad said

today as he officially launched the telco’s latest product: 24/7 Unlimited Broadband.


“Consumers can now download whatever they want, whenever they want, without having

to monitor their usage.  Importantly, they’ll have total certainty of their broadband spend

without the worry of additional monthly charges or throttling,” he said.


“AAPT has committed to unlocking broadband restraints for the past year and what we’re

now launching will change the broadband telco landscape in this country.


“This is a milestone day for Australia as AAPT’s benchmark decision will force our major

competitors to do the same thing. All Australians will benefit from AAPT leading the way

with unlimited broadband,” he said.


And its gets better: in another first, AAPT has announced a unique music streaming and

download deal with record label EMI Music.


The service – unlimited broadband and home phone line rental bundled with a music

subscription - is unique in Australia and offers incredible value for money while appealing

to a wide spectrum of music lovers. 


24/7 Unlimited Broadband also includes home phone line rental, $50 of music downloads

per month with access to up to a million songs and unlimited music streaming for just

$99.95 per month on a 24-month contract. Existing AAPT broadband customers can add

the EMI download deal to their current plans for $17.99 per month.*


“AAPT has formed the partnership with EMI to offer music downloads as part of the

package because we believe in supporting the music industry and paying artists for their

material. It’s that simple,” Paul Broad said.


“As consumers, we all have a moral responsibility to ensure recording artists receive the

royalties they rightly deserve and by offering our Entertainment Bundle we’re

encouraging Australians to do the right thing.


“We were first to market with 2am-8am Unlimited; then 8pm – 8am Unlimited; and now

24/7 Unlimited Broadband downloads plus music streaming.  


AAPT’s Unlimited 24/7 Broadband and Music Bundle is available from February 15 2010.
