NBN Co plans wireless revamp, download speeds of up to 75Mbps on the agenda

NbnNews

NBN Co has released details of its plan to ditch one of its wireless wholesale speed tiers, replacing it with a new product that is expected to eventually support download speeds of up to 75 megabits per second (Mbps) in some circumstances.

The Fixed Wireless Plus product will launch in mid-2019 and initially support download speeds of up to 60Mbps and upload speeds of up to 20Mbps. (Although NBN Co cautions that the product “will provide the best available speeds the network can achieve at the time of use, but such available speeds will fluctuate during the day, and end users may receive speeds that are significantly less than the maximum potential network speed, particularly in the busy period.”)

Spectrum management tricks turn fixed wireless into Fixed Wireless Plus.

NBN Co has announced a significant restructuring and relaunch for its fixed wireless services that will see the product reach for 75 Mbps downloads in the year 2020, as revealed by iTnews in August.

The necessity is an ACMA edict to spectrum users in the 3.4GHz to 3.6GHz bands that requires a new interference management regime that includes specified downlink and uplink network configuration measures. The effect of that edict is that NBN Co will have to withdraw its current wholesale 25-50/5-20 Mbps products by the end of 2019.
