nbn™ Fixed Wireless is a new broadband technology that offers a faster and more reliable internet connection to regional and rural Australia.
If you live out of town and can’t get a dedicated internet service at your premises, Fixed Wireless may be the right solution for you. To get connected, a small antenna is installed on your premises and this picks up a signal from a wireless tower that allows you to access to the internet. Because data is transmitted by radio signals ‘line of sight’ from the tower to your equipment is essential. With speeds up to 25Mbps, the service is much faster than standard ADSL internet services.
