This article provides general information about nbn™ Fixed Wireless to help you learn more about the service and whether it is best suited to meet your requirements.
What is the difference between nbn™ Fixed Line and nbn™ Fixed Wireless?
While both fixed line and fixed wireless broadband services are similar, fixed line broadband is delivered through a fibre optic cable, while fixed wireless broadband is delivered through the air by radio communications via antennas which transmit a signal directly to a small outdoor antenna installed on the premises. The antenna is connected to the Network Termination Device (NTD) by a cable which runs through the wall.
The NTD is hardwired to the small outdoor antenna which is pointed in the direction of a fixed wireless tower.
How does Fixed Wireless Broadband compare with Mobile Wireless?
Speeds for a mobile wireless service can slow down if more people move into the area, while a fixed wireless network it remains relatively steady. Using advanced LTE or 4G technology, the service is delivered to a fixed number of premises within each coverage area. The bandwidth for each household is designed to be more consistent than mobile wireless, even during peak hours of use.
