Plan to Ease NBN Congestion: Fixed Wireless

The National Broadband Network (NBN) may be seeing some positive changes, with NBNCo's pitch to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) detailing how they plan to ease the congestion on fixed-wireless broadband plans, as reported by ZDNet.

According to the submission, the plan is to reduce the amount of fixed-wireless households that can be connected to a cell or "sector". The amount of households that can connect to a cell will drop from 110 premises to 56, and maximum bandwidth will be upped to 4Gbps from 900Mbps in order to ease congestion.

Of course to encompass these changes, it means that more cells will have to be constructed for denser areas in order to ensure that every single household within the fixed-wireless areas will have a cell to connect to.
