As the nbn™ rollout gathers pace, the wait will soon be over for residents in the regional towns and surrounding areas of Dundowran, Nikenbah South and Takura, with 707 premises going live at the end of September. Pacific Haven is set to follow shortly after at the end of October with 285 premises and Buxtonville with 370 premises in the fourth quarter 2015.
Even though nbn has recently announced the need for an additional $25.6 billion to assist with the ongoing rollout of the nbn™network, the news could not be better for residents in the Hervey Bay region who can soon connect to the nbn™.
Activ8me CEO, Tony Bundrock is witnessing increased demand for nbn™Fixed Wireless in previously underserviced regional areas.
“Areas that have suffered from satellite latency issues and poor ADSL connections now have a robust faster alternative with nbn™ fixed wireless solutions. This will mean significantly faster access to online content, fast connectivity, mutilple devices connected at the same time and unlimited bandwidth packages across these new coverage areas,”
To access nbn™ Fixed Wireless, asmall antenna is installed on the premises to pick up the signal from a fixed wireless tower. The current nbn™ fixed wireless service, which operates via radio signals instead of cable infrastructure, offers speeds up to 25/5Mbps.
