This month we also look at the difference between the NBN’s fibre and fixed wireless offerings, try and fix the WiFi signal in your home, and give you some helpful tips to travel with technology.

This month we’re again the voice of reason, donning our cape and saying “no” to website blocking and further censorship of the Internet. Who says geeks can’t be superheroes?

We’ve also been making some awesome updates to Fetch TV and improving our customers’ viewing experiences.

Finally this month, we give a few hints and tips on how to troubleshoot a slow Internet connection, and there is a swag of great movie-related goodies to give away.

If you plan on catching all of the action from the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, then Fetch TV is your friend. With a massive hard drive able to record up to 585 hours of television content, you don’t have to miss a single second of the tournament.

On a more serious note, it’s been reported that the federal government may be reviewing their approach to copyright infringement. We take a look at their proposed plans and how you can get involved.

Our research confirms Australians are confused at how the National Broadband Network will be rolled out. We want our customers to get up to speed as we debunk some of the bigger myths surrounding the NBN.

Meanwhile, we’re also proud to launch our latest and greatest modem – the Budii Lite.

Until next month, happy reading!

Westnet Newsletter – March 2014

April 1st, 2014

Dear Westnet Member,

We’re getting serious about privacy and security here at Westnet, which is why we’re launching Security Month – with plenty of help, advice and online resources to get you up to speed. If you have a ridiculously easy-to-guess password (anyone still using their date of birth?) or continue to use the same password month after month – then you may fall prey to dangerous online attacks.

To get everyone into the swing of switching things up – we’ve got some awesome Samsung smartphones to give away for some lucky customers who update their passwords this month.

As part of our commitment to customer security, we’ve also spent the past few months making changes to our privacy statement, detailing how we collect, use, share, update and protect your personal information. Why don’t you have a read of our updated policy statement today?

Until next month, happy reading!
