Xtra has launched a "low cost" internet starter option for small and medium-sized firms wanting to get online.
QuickStart Plus includes internet access, website, domain name registration and hosting, and a Telecom 0800 number line rental.
Xtra says a new AC Neilsen survey shows more New Zealand companies are buying PCs (from 78% to 84% of all businesses) and connecting to the internet (from 58% to 69%) over the last 12 months.
Quickstart Plus costs $173 start-up, plus $49.95 a month, Domainz annual charges of $44.00 for the second and each subsequent year, and call charges to the 0800 number at normal rates. All charges ex GST.
