nbn™ Business Satellite Service
Connecting rural and remote businesses.
Introducing the nbn™ Business Satellite Service
The nbn™ Business Satellite Service is being designed to support business grade internet, data and voice services** to Australian businesses in remote and rural areas.*
The development of a satellite service for business is part of our ongoing commitment to evolve our wholesale products to better meet Australia’s broadband needs. The nbn™ Business Satellite Service is expected to cater to businesses outside of the current nbn™ Fixed Line footprint, utilising the capabilities of our Sky Muster™ satellites.
Wholesale business grade products are designed to be configurable to support specific performance requirements such as video conferencing and cloud-based applications – which are notably different to those of wholesale residential services.
The nbn™ Business Satellite Service is expected to utilise the Sky Muster™ satellites to connect businesses to the nbn™ Business Satellite Service network, to enable access to business grade internet, data and voice services. The nbn™ Business Satellite Service is in addition to the existing wholesale satellite products we offer to phone and internet providers for residential users and applications.
Underutilised spectrum from the Sky Muster™ satellite service will be allocated to the nbn™ Business Satellite Service – we anticipate using less than 15 per cent of our overall capacity on the access technology.
The nbn™ Business Satellite Service is expected to have the capacity to connect ‘non-addressable’ remote locations, where access to business grade services for the farming, oil, mining and gas industries could be crucial. Farmers for example, may utilise access to new technologies such as video conferencing, remote monitoring or livestock tracking automation applications to help save time and operational costs.
The nbn™ Business Satellite Service could also help businesses during disaster recovery operations, by providing alternative connectivity or access to critical data storage and backup solutions.
* Your experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ Business Satellite Service network, depends on a range of factors, including some factors outside our control such as signal reception, your equipment quality, software, broadband plan, and how your service provider designs its network. Satellite users may experience latency.
** The nbn™ Business Satellite Service provides voice support for VoIP carriage and is not a voice provider.
# Plans over the nbn™ Business Satellite Service may not be offered by all providers.
