iBurst has launched a set of bundles that package Internet connectivity with notebook computers as part of its drive to make the Internet more accessible and affordable to local consumers.

Consumers are able to choose from a range of packages featuring an Acer Extensa Notebook according to their needs and budgets. The bundles include a modem, a free laptop bag and a 3 year extended hardware warranty on the Notebook which all adds up to a great deal for consumers.
The bundles are available on selected iBurst Wireless & HSDPA packages on a 36-month contract.
For R494.00 a month on a 36-month contract, subscribers can opt for a notebook bundle featuring an iBurst Wireless connection with 500Mb of bandwidth. For R488.00 per month on a 36-month contract, subscribers can get HSDPA connectivity with 250Mb of bandwidth.
The Acer Extensa comes equipped with a range of features including a 15,4-inch WXGA high-brightness TFT LCD screen and a selection of powerful communications tools.
Steve Briggs, iBurst's executive head of commercial, comments: "Poor Internet and broadband adoption in South Africa is partly due to the low penetration of PCs in the market. Through these affordable notebook offerings, we hope to bring the Internet within reach of more people and grow the country's population of broadband users.
"The packages allow anyone within HSDPA or iBurst Wireless coverage to quickly and easily start enjoying the benefits of fast and reliable Internet access."
