Kogan crushes competitors with 90% off once-off October offer, 16GB for $4.90


If you haven't yet joined Kogan Mobile, the Koganator wants you to terminate your relationship with competing telcos by re-introducing a special deal to tempt you into a taste of Kogan's telco offering.

Kogan Mobile's special deal is simplicity itself – any time during the month of October, you can port your number (or get a new one) to Kogan Mobile, with all of the company's plans reduced to $4.90 per 30 days.

All of Kogan's voice, text and data plans offer unlimited voice and text, with the only differentiator between each plan being the amount of data that it delivers to end-users.

Thus, whether you select the 1.5GB plan with unlimited voice and text, normally selling for $16.90 per 30 days, through to the largest plan, normally costing $49.90 for a whopping 16GB of data, you'll only pay $4.90 for the first 30 days.

Of course, after the 30-day period is up, you'll revert to the monthly price of the plan you've chosen, with all those plans seen in full at the Kogan Mobile site here.

Kogan Mobile, which operates on the Vodafone network, boasts that its latest offer "will be the largest data inclusion for new customers to date, continuing the telcos ongoing commitment to making mobile data more affordable and accessible for Australians".

The offer is available here, and "ends on 31 October 11:59 pm AEST."

"A partial list of the terms and conditions are as follows: "Valid for new Kogan Mobile customers only. Personal use only. Discount available on Kogan Prepaid Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large 30-day plans purchased before 11:59PM AEDT 31/10/17.

"Discount does not apply to subsequent recharges. Not available for commercial or resale purposes. Discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotional offers. Not transferable and not redeemable for cash. Limit 1 per customer."

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
