What is NBN Fixed Wireless Broadband?

Fixed wireless broadband is similar to a fixed-line broadband service. The key difference is that it is delivered through the air instead of through an optic fibre cable.

The National Broadband Network Fixed Wireless services are delivered by radio communications via antennas that transmit a signal directly to a small outdoor antenna installed on the home. The antenna is connected by a cable running through the wall to the Network Termination Device (NTD) which will be located within the home. The NTD sits within the house, and is hardwired to the outdoor antenna pointed at a fixed wireless tower.

Approximately four ​per cent of Australian premises will have access to a fixed wireless service, predominantly located in outer metropolitan areas.

What are the advantages of Fixed Wireless Broadband?

Unlike a mobile wireless service where speeds can be affected by the number of people moving into and out of the area, the speed available in a fixed wireless network is designed to remain relatively steady. NBN’s fixed wireless network, which uses advanced technology commonly referred to as LTE or 4G, is engineered to deliver services to a fixed number of premises within each coverage area. This means that the bandwidth per household is designed to be more consistent than mobile wireless, even in peak times of use.

NBN Co’s fixed wireless network is designed to offer speeds of up to 25Mbps. This is comparable, and in some cases better, than that available in many urban areas that currently receive ADSL 2+ services.
