Proud to be a Geek? Show us why!

May 25th marks Geek Pride Day and what better way to celebrate than to launch a competition? Geek Pride Day is celebrated around the globe to promote geek culture and recognise all the geeks out there.

Let’s be honest, every day is Geek Pride Day for us here at Node but the 25th is a special day for us to share our geekdom with the world! It’s said the 25th was chosen to coincide with the release of the first Star Wars movie, Episode IV: A New Hope way back in 1977. If that wasn’t enough, the day also marks “Towel Day”, celebrated by fans of classic The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, and The Glorious 25th of May for fans of beloved author Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series.

Wear your inner geekdom proudly and you could win a FRITZ!Box 7490 valued at $249.00 (incl GST)!

The FRITZ!Box 7490 is the only modem you’ll ever want to own, offering unrivalled performance. With the latest 802.11AC WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, and USB 3.0, it’s designed for speed!*

The competitioncommenced on the 25th May and closes on the 30th June so you have plenty of time to get your entries together. It’s simple, here’s what you have to do:

  1. Post a photo of an item or collection that shows your geek pride
  2. Upload the photo onto your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account together with the hashtag #nodegeek and a caption telling us why you need to add the FRITZ!Box 7490 to your collection.

You can enter as many times as you like so once the competition starts, keep entering until you run out of items, not pride! For more information see the full T&C’s here.


*The FRITZ!Box 7490 does not work with NBN HFC technology. Customers wanting to use NBN HFC technology to access the NBN will have to buy another modem that is NBN HFC compatible.
