Unlike most other NBN technology types, an NBN Fixed Wireless installation will not involve cutting off your copper phone line.
That means you can still use it for landline calls, if you want to.
Alternatively, you could get a VoIP phone service which will deliver your landline service via the internet.
What is the difference between NBN and NBN wireless?
An NBN Fixed Wireless connection transmits data using radio signals instead of cables and offers plans up to the Standard speeds. Fixed transmission towers or base stations communicate ‘over the air’ with specific NBN equipment that’s inside and outside your home.
Can the NBN be fixed?
There is no fixed time in which you must move to the NBN in fixed wireless areas. However, if you don’t want to use an ADSL or landline-based voice service, you can cancel your landline service when you activate your fixed wireless service.
What are the alternatives to NBN?
NBN Alternatives: Home Wireless Broadband
Several providers offer this, including Optus, Exetel and Spintel.
