Sky Muster™ launch well received by rural communitiesJune 7, 2016 9:50 pm
Australians living in rural communities who have long struggled with slow Internet speeds while paying exorbitant fees for limited and unreliable service are finally seeing a spark of hope.
After its official launch last month, the nbn™ Sky Muster™ is now getting positive reviews from rural, regional, and remote Australians who have recently subscribed to the service.
Customer High Satisfaction Feedback
According to the Honourable Fiona Nash, Minister for Regional Communications and Regional Development, the newly connected customers are reporting high levels of satisfaction.
“They have started doing the connections, and from what I understand there are very high level of satisfaction from customers that have it already,” Senator Nash remarked as quoted by BeefCentral.
“I have had people coming in and saying this is fantastic and around the fixed wireless people are also really happy with it in regional areas. They have had it hooked up really quickly, and it makes a massive difference for them. I think it is really exciting,” she enthused.
Earlier, she appreciated the network when it launched the long term satellite service last April 29 and stated “The remoteness of our continent and its islands is no longer a barrier to broadband connectivity thanks to the nbn™ Sky Muster™.”
Residents are likewise happy at the new satellite service. Kristy Sparrow, a grazier who has advocated for Internet in the bush through the Better Internet for Rural, Regional, and Remote Australia Facebook page, confirms that her Internet speeds have jumped nearly five times faster than her mobile broadband which used 3G and 4G networks.
As reported in ABC, she said “I just did a speed test before and I’m getting 23 megabits per second (Mbps) download speed and about 4.5Mbps upload speed so that’s pretty good. We never usually got over 5Mbps.”
“Down the track, I will be looking into things like cloud accounting and my kids will be really happy they can update their phones and iPads.”
According to Ms Sparrow, she used to carefully monitor each megabyte of data she consumes. With the new speeds and data allowances on the Sky Muster™, new technological avenues for her family’s property have opened.
“It will be great for our business. Our accountant has been talking about cloud accounting now for several years, but we’ve never had the data to be able to do it… So we’re definitely going forward with our business plan,” Ms Sparrow remarked.
