Last October we told you all about the advanced communication satellite Sky Muster being launched into orbit, aiming to bring nbn™ connectivity to regional Australia. We’re happy to report the launch was successful and the satellite’s broadband service has now been made available for wholesale.
As a valued nbn™ partner, and given that Sky Muster gives us access to speeds as an equivalent land based fibre connection, we can’t wait to enter the satellite arena. The good news is that our iiNet developers are already hard at work preparing a set of satellite products and getting them ready for launch. These are going to be our best value and fastest satellite plans to date – and they will definitely be worth the wait!
So what do these new products mean for our customers? And what can you expect?
There will be various options for quota in our new products to suit different levels of usage, as well as individual budgets. But we’re making sure all products have the quota you need to keep you going and going. Our largest quota plan is looking to give satellite customers double the peak quota they have been receiving in the past.
We’ve all heard about the speed of the nbn™ fibre being installed over Australia – but what about nbn™ satellite speed? We understand Australians in regional areas need fast Internet speed just as much as anyone in the city. That’s why we’re planning to release fast satellite speeds, aiming to get up to 25Mbps on our high speed plan – that’s comparable to an nbn™ Fibre to the Node (FTTN) connection!
As the ISP who is number 1 in customer service, we’re interested in how our customers feel about the new products. We will be listening to your feedback after launch, to make sure our products are perfectly catered to our customer’s wants and needs.
Our plans will be launching very soon – so keep watching this space for more updates. We’ll be letting you know as soon as they’re ready to start signing up and surfing on.
