Earlier in the week, nbn co announced the planned release of Sky Muster™ Plus in 2019, a new product with proposed inclusions such as unmetered web browsing, email and operating system updates.
While it’s early days for the Sky Muster™ Plus product, which is still in the industry consultation phase, it’s exciting news for rural and regional Australians.
Here are the key takeaways for existing residential service users excited about the prospect of unmetered plans.
In simple terms, Sky Muster™ Plus sees the introduction of selective unmetering of some content, the selective shaping of bandwidth-hungry content during peak periods and the ability to burst above the normal plan speed.
Alongside other regional stakeholders, SkyMesh has been advocating the further utilisation of existing capacity on the service for some time during regular consultations with nbn™ and we’re delighted about the announcement.
“Universally, data consumption is increasing rapidly and new products like this, along with the proposed Business Satellite Service, are making big inroads to bridge the digital divide in Australia. This is a big win for rural communities and SkyMesh satellite customers.”
