New year, new laptop!

Friday January 18, 2013 Written by Published in Technology

Rupe Piakura, Apii Davison, Teremoana Unia and Tehira Winchester show off their new HP Netbooks.

The four winners, along with Mangaia’s Raymond Tangatakino, were randomly picked from 130 customers who subscribed to Telecom Cook Islands’ postpaid and prepaid internet services.

They each won a laptop, a carry case and new Microsoft Office software.

The new service sees a wireless modem hired each month for $7.50. Customers then purchase wi-fi cards and use the modem to create their own wireless internet ‘hotspot’.

Tangatakino will receive his prize in the coming weeks on Mangaia.
