The nbn™ rollout is gathering pace in North Queensland. nbn™ Fixed Wireless will shortly be available around the areas of Ingham namely: Forrest Beach, Forrest Beach Town, Halifax, Lucinda, Mt. Cudmore, Taylor Beach and Trebonne. For 2,429 premises, the wait will soon be over as these areas are scheduled for activation towards the end of November.
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,” he added.
Residents can connect to the nbn™ for as little as $39.95 per month through Activ8me.
To access nbn™ Fixed Wireless, a small 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.
The interactive map for areas around Ingham (below) shows the expanded reach of fixed wireless. The brown shaded areas on the map show nbn™ Fixed Wireless service areas going live (Nov). The green shaded area is already live and ready for residents to connect.
