Become part of the NBN no matter where you are with a SkyMesh Broadband NBN service.
What services does SkyMesh offer?
SkyMesh is a wholly owned Australian telecommunications carrier and is an Australian Communications and Media Authority licensee. Born in 2005, it now provides NBN Fibre, NBN Wireless and NBN Satellite services throughout the nation - so you can look forward to getting a connection even if you live in a remote area. The business also provides telephone services over traditional landlines as well as broadband using Tier 1 service providers. If you choose to bundle your broadband connection and SkyMesh Phone you get a $10 discount on your monthly broadband bill. SkyMesh also offers IPSTAR Satellite connections, which are available in different speeds.
How much does SkyMesh cost?
SkyMesh is an accredited nbn co retail service provider and gives you the option to choose from different connection types, including NBN fibre plans. This technology makes use of optic-fibre cable, as opposed to copper telephone lines that ADSL services rely on, so you can expect considerably faster speeds, of up to 100Mbps. Unlike ADSL2+, which has a peak rate of 24Mbps and slows down as you move further away from the telephone exchange, the distance from the fibre access node doesn’t affect the speed of NBN Fibre connections.
In the absence of optic-fibre cables in your neighbourhood, you can opt for an NBN Wireless broadband connection. This uses fixed-wireless high speed technology with speeds of 12/1Mbps and 25/5Mbps. For remote locations not serviced by fibre, copper or Fixed Wireless, SkyMesh offers access to the NBN Sky Muster satellite service.
What additional services are included?
What voice options are provided?
SkyMesh has phone bundle options on offer for its NBN service. For $10 a month, customers can access a VoIP service that charges for calls on an individual basis, with local and national landline calls costing $0.10 each and calls to Australian mobiles costing 30c/minute. International call prices start at $0.01/minute, depending on the country you are dialling.
What happens if I exceed my monthly download limit?
A large number of SkyMesh plans feature peak and off-peak data allowances, based on the time you are accessing the service. If you exceed that amount, SkyMesh will shape your NBN speed down to 256Kbps or 128Kbps, depending on your plan.
