Giving regional and remote Australia access to fast broadband

nbn is committed to providing increased access to broadband services throughout regional and remote Australia, helping to connect more people in Australia’s hard to reach places.

The nbn™ Fixed Wireless and Sky Muster™ satellite services are used mostly in regional and remote areas, where premises are spread out geographically over many square kilometres. If you’re located in a distant corner of Australia, check your address to see what technology is available at your home or business.

nbn™ Fixed Wireless

nbn™ Fixed Wireless is a form of connection where data is sent from a transmission tower and travels wirelessly to an antenna that has been fitted by an nbn™ approved installer to your roof.

Sky Muster™ satellite

The connection of some remote and rural locations services can be delivered via our Sky Muster™ satellite. In this scenario a satellite dish is installed on the premises and receives the signal from the Sky Muster™ satellite.

nbn™ Fixed Line connections

All types of nbn™ broadband access network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises (FTTP, FTTN, FTTB) are considered nbn™ Fixed Line connections. The difference between each type of connection simply comes down to how we utilise existing network technology in connecting the nearest available fibre node to your specific premises.
