nbn™ has announced a new Sky Muster™ Plus option for its satellite service.
Sky Muster™ Plus will allow for “essential” services offered by nbn™ which includes email, internet banking, web browsing and critical software updates. nbn™ have indicated they will not be shaped if the household’s data quota is exceeded.
Importantly, these essential services will not count towards the monthly data allowances.
Streaming video and online gaming are two activities nbn™ have said would continue to be shaped if a household’s data quota is exceeded.
nbn™ has also said that it will allow speed bursts higher than 25/5 mbps.
nbn™ is consulting with RSPs before new plans are announced in 2019.
