Cosplay: Fashion meet fandom

Friday, September 15th, 2017 by

How can you combine creativity, costume-making, and all kinds of crafting with a hearty dose of geeky fun? Cosplay, of course! If you’re out of the loop, cosplay, or ‘costume play’ refers to the act of wearing a costume that looks like a character from a fictional work. The practice of wearing these costumes to science fiction conventions grew popular all the way back in the 1940s.

It’s not strictly limited to science fiction, though – today, characters from virtually all forms of media are cosplayed, including comic books, cartoons, manga, anime, video games, novels, TV series, movies. It’s open to all ages – even babies can get in on the action with a little help from their parents. If there’s a will, there’s a way (although having a hot glue gun helps a lot).

If you’re not a fan of reality TV, chances are that you might prefer your stories with a much cleaner divide between good and evil. If you hadn’t guessed already, we’re talking about super heroes: straight from the pages of novels and comic books, they’ve been coming to life on the small screen thanks to CGI and a broader market of television networks.

While it’s hard to say no to an action-packed blockbuster at your local cinema, a TV series gives us enough time to get to know the characters and in many cases, see them get to know each other. So while you’re getting your latest fix of Game of Thrones or Preacher, we’ve scoured the internet for all the latest news of superheroes to bring you a choice selection of shows that you should definitely add to your “to watch” list!

Factors affecting speeds on the NBN™

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 by

In order to help Australians make informed choices when it comes to the NBN™, Internode is amongst the first Internet Service Providers to follow recommendations from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to move away from unclear language such as “up to” when describing NBN™ speeds.

We now clearly state the speed ranges customers should experience on each NBN™ speed tier as follows:

  • Bronze: Between 5 – 12Mbps download, 1Mbps upload.
  • Silver: Between 5 – 25Mbps download, 1 – 5Mbps upload.
  • Gold: Between 12 – 50Mbps download, 1 – 20Mbps upload.
  • Platinum: Between 12 – 100Mbps downloads, 1 – 40Mbps upload.

These ranges are based on information supplied by our wholesaler, NBNCo. While Internode has always endeavoured to provide the best experience to our customers this can be challenging as NBNCo itself does not guarantee minimum speeds at a wholesale level.
