What the NBN means for Minyip:
Trent Williams NBN Co spokesperson said:
“There are around 50,000 residents and businesses already reaping the benefits of fast and reliable broadband as we continue the network rollout across Victoria.
“The NBN has the potential to be a key driver of growth in Australia’s declining manufacturing industry. Access to fast and reliable broadband can provide new opportunities for innovative businesses to create niche products, expand into new markets and reduce operational costs.” (nbnco.com.au)
Activ8me Marketing Manager Ian Roberts is proud to be able serve new communities with a great digital experience:
“Activ8me has always worked to provide services for regional Australia. We are now able to service 165,000 premises in regional Australia with NBN Fixed Wireless. We are privileged to be able to serve Minyip and help improve the lives of the local community.”
The NBN fixed wireless network is coming to various communities through Australia in 2015. This new form of technology promises to give all Australians access to faster and more effective internet than ever before.
There are several benefits of fixed wireless, including:
- Fixed wireless offers speeds of up to 25Mbps, which is equal to or better than what people in urban areas with an ADSL 2+ services.
- The speed remains steady, because unlike a mobile wireless service, the speed will not be affected by people moving into and out of the area
- It uses advanced technology commonly referred to as LTE or 4G
- The bandwidth per household will be more consistent than mobile wireless, even in peak times of use
The technology works via small antenna installed on your premises. It picks up a signal from a fixed wireless tower, allowing you to receive speeds comparable to internet services in metro areas.
