NBN™ Fixed Wireless

Fixed wireless

The nbn™ fixed wireless network extends the reach of the nbn™ Ethernet Bitstream Service (nbn™ Ethernet) beyond the fixed line footprint providing high speed, reliable broadband through a professionally installed service designed to give surety of performance.

Why connect your customers to nbn™ fixed wireless?

The nbn™ fixed wireless technology can improve the lives of customers by bringing broadband benefits to areas that have previously been unable to get high speed fixed-line broadband services.

Professional installation

nbn™ provides a professional signal strength test (radio signal survey) before installation of the nbn Fixed Wireless antenna in your premises. The radio signal survey result must be positive in order for equipment to be installed.

More info

Fixed Wireless provides a wireless access link from your premises to a wireless base station connected to the nbn network.

Coverage areas

In order to receive the nbn™ Fixed Wireless service, your premises must be within the nbn wireless coverage area and have a line of sight between the closest or most appropriate nbn™ Fixed Wireless base station. If that is the case, and the strength of the wireless signal is strong enough to provide a wireless service, the professional installation of customer premises equipment will proceed.

We will send you a pre configured NBN Gateway (modem). Simply plug the gateway into the NBN connection box and you are connected.
