Overall, neXus represents a remarkable step forward for Perth's digital landscape. By blending the potential of Meta's Terragraph technology with Team Pentanet's innovative approach, this project has the potential to transform the way people connect, work, and live in the city, positioning Perth as a leader in digital infrastructure and connectivity.

Initially designed for dense urban landscapes, our team embarked on an extensive research and development journey to develop a solution to fit Perth's unique environment. We created our Fixed Wireless network to thrive where the nbn™ fell short, and neXus is the next evolution of our mission for Perth's digital future.

How neXus works is by turning every home connected to the service into a miniature Fixed Wireless tower, or as we like to call them, meshy bois. By creating a web of these meshy bois, we create a diverse pathway of connection routes. If your home doesn’t have a direct pathway back to the tower (the spider at the centre of its web), it can bounce down and around these pathways between meshy bois to find the fastest route possible.

Gone are the days of relying on a clear line of sight to a tower. With neXus, we deliver practically unrivalled speeds. This is because wireless connections thrive on proximity. While normal wireless signals degrade with distance, neXus ensures that your data only needs a few short hops between our meshy bois, outperforming a single long leap between you and the tower. This lets you enjoy blazing fast next-level wireless speeds like nothing Perth ever dreamed of.

Experience the future of connectivity with neXus.

More Information

While Fixed Wireless offers a viable alternative to nbn™ for under-served suburbs, neXus takes it to the next level. So, what makes neXus stand out from the crowd?

With neXus, we've harnessed the incredible power of Terragraph and millimetre-wave (mmWave) technologies, making it a true game-changer in the wireless world.

Our intelligent mesh design allows us to eliminate coverage issues and line-of-sight obstacles by routing connections across a mesh of connected homes, rather than a single line to the tower. The focused mmWave signal also allows for unlocked speeds that can only be described as jaw-dropping.

So, if you're ready to take your wireless experience to new heights, neXus is the way to go.

We couldn't have come this far without the amazing support and enthusiasm of our fellow Perth residents who share our vision.

Now, it's time for the next big leap. Introducing Phase 1 of Pentanet neXus – a major milestone in the network’s journey. The unique design of neXus means that it works best when we bring an entire grid of new connections online at the same time. This approach does mean there might be a slight delay between your installation and the activation of your service. But don't worry. Our onboarding team is here to guide you through the process and address any questions you may have.

We've worked tirelessly to create a revolutionary network that stands head and shoulders above the competition, delivering mind-blowing performance that will leave you speechless. With neXus, say goodbye to lag and hello to ultra-low latency and lightning-fast speeds that will skyrocket your gaming to new heights.

If you're curious about how latency affects your online gaming experience, we've got you covered. Dive into the nitty-gritty details by checking out our blog post on the subject.

With neXus, Pentanet provides you the fastest connection possible, with speeds unlocked to always provide you the best. While average upload and download speeds may vary depending on their position within the mesh, subscribers can expect impressive speeds ranging from 200-600Mbps, with some even experiencing mind-blowing speeds exceeding 900Mbps.

As Pentanet owns and operates neXus, we have full control over managing network load. That means high-performance speeds are a guarantee, even during peak times. So, if your home uses the neXus Hell Fast plan, you can enjoy download and upload speeds that are typically more than 10 times faster* than the average speeds on the nbn™.

Now, we're in Phase 1 of the neXus rollout, and occasionally, you might experience some speed fluctuations as we expand the mesh and bring more grids online in your area. But rest assured that our dedicated team is working tirelessly to provide you with a consistently exceptional experience.
  • Comparison based on average speeds on the nbn™ network.

The gradual rollout of the neXus mesh means that the network's coverage is constantly expanding.

Check your address at the top of this page to see if you are ready to be connected.

We've made sure that all our plans are 'neXus ready' for when neXus becomes available in your suburb. Switching to neXus is a breeze, and we're here to guide you through the process. Contact our friendly Onboarding team at (08) 9466 2670 to discuss the seamless switching process when neXus is available for your home.

Unlike mobile network-based options, neXus harnesses the power of a highly focused mmWave signal, establishing a direct connection from the nearest connection point to your premises. Enjoy unparalleled last-mile latency, typically less than 1ms per connection point between you and the tower, letting you get on with gaming, working or streaming at the highest quality.

Now, as we navigate Phase 1 of the neXus rollout, occasional latency fluctuations may emerge as we expand the mesh in your area. But fear not, for our dedicated team is tirelessly working behind the scenes to optimize your connectivity and ensure a seamlessly smooth online experience.

As the proud owners and operators of neXus, Pentanet has total control of the network, which allows us to manage it directly and ensure consistent, high-performance speeds. Subscribers on the neXus Hell Fast plan are treated to speeds typically ranging from 200Mbps to 600Mbps.

Currently, we are in Phase 1 of the neXus roll out, and so there may be occasional speed fluctuations, but our team is dedicated to reducing the impact and frequency of these fluctuations until they become things of the past.

During Phase 1 deployment, neXus may not cater to businesses with specific requirements, such as port forwarding or complex setups. If your business needs these features, a traditional Fixed Wireless or nbn™ connection may be more suitable. Our team is here to assist you in finding the best service for your business needs. Contact our local Onboarding team at (08) 9466 2670 to explore whether neXus is the ideal solution for your business.

It's important to note that neXus thrives in urban and residential regions with a clear line of sight. For rural or semi-rural areas with lower housing density, there may be more suitable options available. In such cases, we recommend exploring the availability of a traditional Pentanet Fixed Wireless connection, which can better cater to your specific needs and ensure reliable connectivity. Our goal is to find the perfect solution for you, whether you're in the heart of the city or nestled in the outskirts.

Typically, Pentanet neXus installations take around 3 to 4 hours to complete. It's worth noting that for some installations, a follow-up appointment might be necessary to install backup power.

The unique mesh design of neXus favours bringing a whole grid of new connections online simultaneously rather than tackling them one by one on the installation day. This approach ensures optimal network performance. However, it's important to be aware that this current setup may cause a slight delay between your installation and the activation of your service. To gain a better understanding of the process, we recommend reaching out to our onboarding team. They're here to guide you every step of the way and provide all the information you need.

To ensure the best neXus experience, we require the use of Pentanet's specialised Prism Edge Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Router for all neXus services. This powerful router is specifically designed to deliver seamless connectivity and unlock the full potential of neXus.

While you have the option to connect additional routers as Wi-Fi extenders to the Prism Edge, we currently recommend utilizing additional Prism Edge routers for Wi-Fi meshing. Please note that for devices other than the Prism Edge, Pentanet cannot provide neXus technical support.

With the Prism Edge at the heart of your neXus setup, you'll enjoy reliable and high-performance connectivity that will take your online experience to the next level.

While heavy hail or torrential rainfall may result in a slight reduction in signal strength and overall speeds, rest assured that neXus is designed to withstand the elements. Average rainfall is highly unlikely to have any noticeable impact on your neXus experience. So, whether the sun is shining or raindrops are falling, neXus is here to keep you connected and deliver reliable and exceptional service.

Absolutely! We've got you covered, even if you're renting. As long as the homeowner gives the green light for neXus installation, you can enjoy the benefits of our service. To make things easier for you, Pentanet can even provide an email to your property manager explaining the seamless and low-impact nature of neXus installations.
