School Student Broadband Initiative

Skymesh is proud to join forces with the Australian Government and NBN Co to provide free broadband to families in need. As part of the School Students Broadband initiative, Skymesh is committed to providing up to 50 megabits per second (Mbps) of fixed-line, Fixed-Wireless Plus, and Sky Muster Plus services to 30,000 families across Australia who currently lack internet access.

This initiative is a landmark step forward in providing equal opportunities for students and families, no matter where they live in Australia or how much they earn. Skymesh is honoured to be part of this solution and to deliver reliable and fast broadband services to those who need it the most.

“We believe everyone deserves equal access to the internet and to be able to receive a quality education. This initiative is a step forward in providing equal opportunities for students across the country,” says Stephen O’Shanassy of Skymesh. “We’re proud to be part of the solution and to provide reliable, fast, and affordable broadband to families who need it the most.”
