SkyMesh offers satellite and fixed wireless NBN plans with a focus on rural and regional areas.
Its plans are priced competitively and there's an opportunity to lower your costs by signing up to a 12-month contract.
SkyMesh NBN is right for you if:
However, you should also consider that:
SkyMesh's satellite plans cover both regular Sky Muster and Sky Muster Plus, with the latter offering unmetered data except for video streaming and VPN use during peak hours (4pm–midnight).
The satellite NBN plans are priced well but there are some providers like Activ8me offering cheaper plans with similar features. There are no activation or set-up fees.
The Sky Muster Educational Plans offer a good deal for students with anytime data that can be pooled if more than 1 student is using the plan.
The modems start from $199.99 if you don't plan on using your own.
SkyMesh offers 3 fixed wireless plans with different data amounts to choose from: 100GB, 600GB or unlimited.
With more providers offering fixed wireless plans, SkyMesh's stack up average against the market. With no typical evening speeds advertised, you could find a better price for a specified speed elsewhere.
Since the ACCC broadband performance report focuses on fixed-line NBN, SkyMesh's plans are not covered. This makes it difficult to verify its speeds' reliability.
Additionally, SkyMesh doesn't advertise any typical evening speeds on its fixed wireless plans, which means you could receive speeds well below the maximum threshold.
You can get in touch with Skymesh in the following ways:
Besides SkyMesh's special plan offerings for distance learning students in Australia, it only really has 1 more additional feature:
Successfully referring a friend to SkyMesh's satellite or fixed wireless NBN can earn both of you $100 in cash. This is a great offer as far as referral deals are concerned.

Tangerine has a range of fixed wireless plans and some of the cheapest plans on Finder. It offers 6-month sign-up discounts to sweeten the deal.
