Speed Boost On Way For NBN’s Fixed Wireless Service

Speed Boost On Way For NBNGavin Williams, NBN’s fixed wireless and satellite GM,
gave this message to the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network
conference in Sydney.

More than 60,000 homes and businesses are now connected to the service, up from
the approximately 47,000 in the year to June 30. The service has reached a
scale where “it’s no longer just a bit player in NBN’s stable of
technologies,” Williams said.

“If you do the maths, that’s a penetration of 22 per cent. Our business
plan has us growing to 55 per cent penetration,” Williams said.

The service has been well received by end users, Williams said. On average, end
users ranked the fixed wireless installation process at 7.9 out of 10, the
product experience at 8.3/10 and value for money at 8.4/10.
