Streaming with engin
If you’ve heard of Netflix, Stan, Quikflix or any other online TV provider, then you’ve heard of streaming. Streaming is basically downloading content and watching it at the same time. And if you want to stream, then you want fast Internet. engin doesn’t offer an Internet TV service, so if that was what you were after, you’re going to have to look elsewhere. What they DO provide is the sort of speeds required to get the most out of your streaming service.
Compatible Devices with engin
engin Broadband is compatible with all Internet-ready devices, including most computers, tablets, smartphones and Smart TVs. The telco offers fast Internet and even connection to the National Broadband Network (NBN) - if that is available in your area.
