WHAT IS NBN FIXED WIRELESS?
Fixed wireless transmits data via radio waves from a nearby transmission tower to a tiny antenna placed on the premises of the customer. The customer’s home’s modem is then joined to this antenna to give them access to the internet.
The ability to affordably provide an internet connection to rural and regional locations is one of fixed wireless’s primary advantages. Additionally, the installation procedure is quick and simple and causes little damage to the client’s property.
Depending on the area and the connection’s quality, fixed wifi can give download rates of up to 50Mbps. Most homes may enjoy a variety of internet activities with this speed, including streaming high-definition videos, downloading huge files, and playing online games.
Fixed wireless does have certain limits, though. The technology is vulnerable to interference from the environment and other variables, which might degrade the connection’s quality. Additionally, because the network could get crowded, it is not recommended for very big properties or places where there is a great demand for internet connection.
Despite these drawbacks, fixed wireless is a crucial component of the NBN and has improved internet access for many individuals in Australia’s remote and rural locations. It will continue to be a crucial component of the NBN rollout since it is an affordable and dependable alternative for bringing high-speed internet to these locations.
