Compare iiNet fixed wireless NBN plans

Alex Kidman 27 July 2017 NEWS

iiNet offers a range of fixed wireless NBN plans to suit every budget.

What is fixed wireless NBN?

The fixed wireless portion of the NBN largely services regional areas where for reasons of distance or local geography (or both), it's not feasible to run fixed-line solutions such as FTTN or FTTP.

The underlying technology for use with fixed wireless NBN is essentially the same as the 4G LTE used by smartphones. Where it differs is in the way that the service is provisioned. A mobile network allows as many users as it can handle onto a single tower, but fixed wireless NBN installations are provisioned to a fixed set of properties. That means that it's not mobile, but you will have more consistent throughput and speed on your connection.

The installation of a fixed wireless NBN connection involves the installation of both an NBN connection box inside your home or remote office as well as an antenna on the roof, which is then connected to a gateway device inside your home, typically provided by your ISP.

Why choose iiNet fixed wireless NBN?

iiNet is a wholly owned brand of the TPG group. It's the company's premium brand, with a range of broadband and mobile plans on offer.

When comparing services, it's worth including Dodo in your comparison to ensure you get the best value for your broadband dollar.

Dodo is particularly notable for offering flexible contract terms, so you can sign up for an extended period if you're happy or just test the waters with a short-term NBN contract.
