Is home wireless right for me?

If you're unsatisfied with your NBN fixed-line connection, regularly move houses or need portable Internet then home wireless could be a good alternative.

Pros

  • Modems are portable and easy to set up.
  • Variety of plans with unlimited data.
  • Some plans offer no modem fees at all or $0 cost when you stay for a specified term.
  • Options for 4G and 5G.

Cons

  • Can have higher upfront costs than NBN plans.
  • A less stable connection than NBN – like a mobile phone connection service, home wireless is affected by weather and network traffic.
