Fixed wireless and wholesale network infrastructure provider Swoop Holdings has acquired Perth-based fixed wireless provider Community Communications (ComComs).
Australia compares poorly to New Zealand when it comes to broadband download speeds, the New Zealand Commerce Commission says in its Annual Telecommunications Monitoring Report, with Kiwis enjoying average download speeds of 67Mbps.
Australian fixed wireless and wholesale network infrastructure provider, Swoop, has announced the appointment of John Phillips as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) ahead of its proposed listing on the ASX in April.
One of former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull's contributions to the national broadband network, the HFC network, has been termed a dog's breakfast by a retail service provider.
Recently-listed WA ISP Pentanet now has more than 10,000 subscribers.
Claiming a "world-record" for long-range 5G transmission using mmWave technology, Australia's government-owned National Broadband Network company is actively developing "new options to further optimise the performance and customer experience of the nbn Fixed Wireless network".
Analyst firm Frost & Sullivan predicts that 5G fixed wireless is about to replicate the success of 4G for this application.
An Italian trial of 5G mmWave for fixed wireless has achieved a record 1Gbps over a distance of 6.5km.
With Telstra receiving payments from NBN Co for each Telstra customer that connects to an NBN connection, Telstra's 5G Home Internet rollout has to be targeted, but promises from 50 to 300Mbps speeds with a 500GB data cap for $85 per month - and there are 215Mbps Superfast and 250Mbps Ultrafast options for FTTP and HFC but not FTTN customers, and faster typical evening speeds, too.
The annual losses incurred by NBN Co, the company rolling out Australia's national broadband network, have been halved in 2019-20 year-on-year, according to the company's results which were announced on Tuesday.
Selling the NBN Co to a private entity as a monopoly would be the worst way to ensure that the network is upgraded, a network expert says, adding that if the definition of insanity is to do the same thing repeatedly and expect different results, then privatising NBN Co as a monopoly would definitely qualify.
The best way forward for the national broadband network is for it to remain in government hands and be managed for strategic advantage, rather than commercial gain, a network expert has told iTWire.
The Federal Government needs to draft a statement of expectation as to what it expects to happen to the national broadband network next, after the network rollout is officially over at the end of the month, veteran telecommunications analyst Paul Budde says, adding that otherwise Australia will continue to languish in the broadband wilderness.
Barring a major catastrophe, the Coalition Government will be able to announce within a fortnight or so that it has completed the rollout of the national broadband network and met its target. One can only hope that, at the same time, there will be an announcement about how the network will be upgraded.
NBN Co, the company building Australia’s National Broadband Network, lifted total revenue by 39% to $1.81 billion for the six months to the end of December 2019, with company chief Stephen Rue declaring the result “outstanding during a crucial time of the build”.
The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is poised to witness the highest growth in the global telecom and pay-TV market between 2019 and 2024 due to conducive telecom policies and rapid mobile and fibre network roll-outs, according to new research.
The Coalition Government made the right choice back in 2013 to adopt a multi-technology mix for rolling out the national broadband network, ditching a Labor plan to have fibre to 93% of homes and service the rest through fixed wireless and satellite, Communications Minister Paul Fletcher says.
A Huawei Australia official has used his address to a 5G Business Summit in Sydney to push his employer's wares as the solution to the slow NBN connection issue that many Australians face, through the medium of 5G fixed wireless.
The NBN Co has quietly released its third-quarter results for the 2018-19 financial year, showing a growth of 45% in revenue to $2.0 billion year-on-year, but still continuing to bleed red ink with a loss of $2.7 billion for the financial year so far. This takes the accumulated losses to $20.7 billion over the lifespan of the company.
The deployment of 5G technology could present a significant opportunity for NBN Co, according to NetComm director of marketing and communications, Els Baert.
