The National Broadband Network (nbn) is up and running and will be offering a new, high-speed internet connection to all Australian homes regardless of where you live.
GrainGrowers has been conducting a national roadshow with the nbnTM and retail service providers bringing the message about the nbnTM and creating awareness and providing important information to enable growers and regional communities to be better informed about the new connectivity opportunities that are being rolled out.
In cities and larger towns the nbnTM will be providing internet services via fixed line (sometimes called fibre to the node) or fixed wireless. In more remote locations a fixed wireless or a satellite service will be offered.
In a growing number of remote and regional locations fixed wireless is ready for service and since April 27 2016, the new nbnTM Sky MusterTM high-speed satellite service has been available to every Australian home (approximately 400,000) that cannot receive a fixed line or fixed wireless service.
This means that you can now get access to fast, reliable internet with the equipment, cabling, standard installation and maintenance provided at no cost by the nbnTM. Customers connected so far are enjoying the freedom of uninterrupted, reliable internet. This was identified by GrainGrowers’ members as a huge impediment to rural and regional development.
Harbour ISP, based in Mudgee NSW, is one of the largest internet service providers in Australia and has been in the satellite internet business for over 10 years. They are also a registered test and launch partner with the nbnTM for Sky MusterTM services.
