Data Nets offers mobile internet service

Business, Normal

INFORMATION technology company Data Nets Ltd introduced a new mobile internet service this week.
Through its internet service provider (ISP) division, Online South Pacific, it now offers a portable and flexible time-based dial-in service that operates on the Digicel network across PNG.
Customers can access the internet, anywhere in the country where there is a Digicel cell phone general packet radio service (GPRS) connection.
All that was needed was a small internet connector which plugs into the USB port of the computer. Effectively, this is a small USB modem with a SIM card which lets the user dial up the internet through Digicel’s network.
In another first, users can purchase their time blocks directly through their Digicel cell phone.
 “No need to queue up for cards or tokens,” Glynn Low, OSP sales manager, said.
“For example, just dial *468*1*12#, and you will immediately receive your two-hour time code on your cell phone.
“This is a phenomenal breakthrough in customer convenience … just imagine, you can access the internet at anytime, anywhere.”
