If you live in regional or remote Australia, chances are you have a limited choice in the type of Internet service and an even smaller pool of ISPs to do business with. Since the government rolled out the newest NBN broadband Internet technology, millions of people are switching from traditional ADSL2+ connection to a brand new NBN Internet plan.
Whilst fixed line and fixed wireless are considered the most common types of NBN Internet service in urban and some rural communities, NBN satellite Internet is the prevailing force in regional and remote Australia. In terms of speed and reliability, NBN satellite plans are just as good in delivering satisfactory service to clients living in the outback.
NBN Satellite Speed – Ending Digital Draught in Remote Parts of Australia
Satellite NBN is radically different from the traditional copper wire technology utilised for ADSL2+ Internet connections. Dedicated broadband satellites were launched into space to ensure all Australians get the speedy and consistent Internet they deserve.
The two dedicated satellites are programmed to serve a total of 135 Gbps of capacity all across Australia. At most, Internet satellite service plans can deliver up to 25 Mbps download speed to subscribers. In terms of upload speed, you can expect up to 5Mbps, just about the same speed offered with fixed line and fixed wireless Internet plans.
Providing Equal Opportunities and Access to Fast and Reliable Internet Connectivity
One of the unique qualities of NBN satellite Internet is its implementation of Fair Usage Policy. Unlike traditional fixed line or fixed wireless subscribers who can request extra capacity or data allowance for their plans, all satellite NBN subscribers will have equal access to speedy Internet during peak and off peak hours.
NBN satellite broadband deals range from entry-level plans for single end-users to the more expensive, premium packages that offer larger data allowances for multiple households or those who own multiple devices.
In terms of pricing, NBN satellite plans are made affordable for subscribers. Although additional equipment is needed to be installed, ISPs offer installment payments for satellite dish, router, and other devices that may be needed for an Internet connection to be established in your home. The total monthly payments will depend on your needs and budget. With this in mind, we recommend that you carefully analyse your monthly data usage. This will help you determine the type of NBN satellite plan for your home.
