Choosing an internet package can be confusing. There are so many providers and packages to choose from. Where do you start?
Having great internet isn’t just about price. There’s the speed to consider, support and installation amongst others. Do you go wireless or use NBN?
No one wants to be locked into a long contract that doesn’t suit them so if you’re considering an internet package, it’s important to do your research first and get what’s right for you.
This week we take a look at fixed wireless and NBN.
Fixed-wireless v NBN?The NBN has unfairly copped a whack for some time, but for some, it may be a good option. First up, if you have a fibre connection or live near a node, you can get some pretty good internet speeds.
Secondly, just because there might be faster internet out there, such as wireless, it doesn’t mean that it’s the best option for you.
A good place to start is to see how many devices you have and what you need them for. If you just want to stream the latest episode of Game of Thrones, then a lower tier NBN or Pentanet fixed-wireless plan will probably fit your needs fine.
On the other hand, if you like your gaming fast and furious or have many internet hungry users in the house it may best to go for a higher tier NBN or Pentanet fixed-wireless plan.
It works just like a Foxtel receiver. With just a small dish installed on your roof, you can receive internet speeds up to twice as fast as the NBN, provided you’re within signal reach from one of our many Perth city towers
A quick look at our Check your address section on our Pentanet website homepage will tell you whether you’re able to receive our fixed wireless.

Fixed Wireless v NBN priceIf you’re thinking: fixed wireless can be twice as fast as NBN, therefore it must be twice as expensive, you’d be wrong. Our fixed wireless plans are super competitive with the base plan comparable to NBN.
