Insatiable thirst for faster data speeds quenched for 350,000 lucky regional residents Featured

The nbn is switching on data speeds five times faster than ADSL on December 1, for 370,000 lucky fixed wireless customers in regional areas.

Activ8me general manager marketing Ian Roberts says this translates to 50 megabits/sec download and 20 megabits/sec upload speeds.

The increase in data speed only applies to residents who have access to the nbn’s fixed wireless network—30% of households who have already connected to the nbn. Fixed wireless is designed for people who are not in town and can not get access to ADSL.

Roberts said, “After five months of testing whether the fixed wireless infrastructure was capable of the faster speeds, on December 1, ISPs will be able to start selling the 50/20 product as a commercial product.

He added that usually speed upgrades cost $10/month to $20/month per incremental upgrade. Residents can connect to the nbn for as little as $39.95 per month through Activ8me, as well as unlimited data plans from $59.95.

To access nbn Fixed Wireless, a small antenna is installed on the premises to pick up the signal from a fixed wireless tower. The nbnTM Fixed Wireless service operates via radio signals instead of cable infrastructure, soon offering speeds up to 50/20 mbps. A standard installation is at no cost to the resident.
