nbn™ Fixed Wireless is a type of nbn™ technology. A fixed wireless connection is typically used in rural and regional areas of Australia where the distance between premises can be many kilometres. In this circumstance, data travels from an nbn transmission tower located as much as 14kms from your home to a rooftop antenna.
Fixed Wireless connections require an nbn™ network device (NTD) to be installed at the point where the cable from the roof antenna enters your home. If you don’t have this equipment installed already, an nbn™ installer will conduct a radio signal survey to make sure your home is able to receive a good quality fixed wireless service.
If you are able to receive a good quality signal, the nbn™ technician will mount an outdoor antenna on the roof of your premises. They will then drill a small hole through your wall and feed the cable from the antenna into the nbn™ NTD which will be installed on an inside wall of your home.
To connect to the internet on Fixed Wireless, you will require a compatible router with a WAN port that will plug into the nbn™ NTD in your home. You can use an existing router/modem (BYO), or you can purchase a modem/router from us.More information about nbn™ Fixed Wireless can be found on the nbn™ website.
