Free nbn Fixed Wireless Antenna and NTD Upgrade and 100/20, 250/20 & 400/40 Speed Tiers @ nbn Co via Participating ISPs

nbn have and are continuing to upgrade the nbn Fixed Wireless network with new 4G and 5G mmWave tech and the speed tiers have increased to 100/20, 250/20 and 400/40.

We’re optimising the Fixed Wireless network, including installing the next generation 4G and 5G equipment. This new technology is designed to deliver more reach (by extending the range of the towers from 14km to up to 29kms where possible) and more speed to regional and remote Australia. nbn will be amongst the first in the world to deploy the 5G technology at this scale for a dedicated Fixed Wireless network.

We’re evolving the network by also working with local governments and councils to install new Fixed Wireless towers in selected areas.
