    Pretty sure its like mobile wireless interwebs from your mobile phone, but its a permanent thing from your home using a dish/ reciever thingo picking up a signal from a tower. Sorry not sure on the tecchy words there.

    Whoa what's fixed wireless? Would like to know more.

    I've recently gone from horrendous internet connection to the you beaut NBN and farking no difference! And I'm in suburbia!

    It's terrible and still have no internet connection from time to time.

    Edit: To be clear, sometimes my "landline" has no internet connection even with NBN connection, but I can get internet on my phone living here in the burbs. It's pathetic let alone being out of town a bit crikey.

    Our girls struggle to Webex login to their high/primary school groups at the same times and it’s really starting to affect their focus.

    Telstra’s response:

    “I'm afraid ADSL does not really offer much speed. It's only upto 25mbps. I'm afraid I never heard anything about Telstra reducing the speed. We provide the max speed as much as possible on the area for adsl. Speedboost does not work on adsl too. As much as we would like to provide a better technology there, NBn is now government mandated however, there's no timeframe on your area yet on when it's going to be available. You may also try to apply directly to NBN . “

    The reply did go on further with suggestions of ‘mobile broadband’ although here is a quick ‘speed test’ off my phone here at its 3G peak:



    Here is a snippet of the ADSL speed test at its peak:




    I understand that our Networks (if that’s what it’s called) are coping a flogging these days but if I climb to the top of our hill I can see Melbourne’s Eureka Towers lights off in the distance!

    Is there Satellite options available these days for remote outback schooling Australian’s ?

    Hey MB. The education department are offering all students, either a device to use to work on, eg an iPad, or a device to connect to the internet, eg: SIM card, or a device that can be setup as a hotspot, or both, eg: an iPad with a SIM card.

    Your phone's internet connection photo didn't look promising, but you should approach the school and see if they can supply you with something. I'd tell them you don't have a working internet connection & need something for your kids, they should provide you with something.

    NBN fixed wireless can be good. We have it and it's pretty good, but we live in a rural area so our NBN tower doesn't get alot of traffic.

    Think of fixed wireless as you do with how your phone internet works, it's fundamentally the same idea, an antenna on your roof talks to an NBN tower, just like your phone talks to a 4G tower.

    I'm involved with the Dept of Ed stuff so if you need some help or info, PM me and I'll do what I can to help.
