Not willing to wait for the NBN, I turned to fixed wireless

Three years ago, Raj Deut attempted to connect to the NBN in Moonee Ponds, Melbourne. He had just bought an apartment in an area that was promised world-class Internet speeds by the NBN.

"Each year the government changed their strategy with the NBN in my area and with each change came a delay. Moonee Ponds has been pushed from Fibre to the premises, to fibre to the node, to fibre to the curb, and now, I don't really know." NBN Co's website now advises that more information will be forthcoming.

Raj got tired of waiting so he started looking for alternatives.

"Uniti Wireless had just installed a tower in my suburb and I was one of their first customers in Melbourne," he says.

"From my initial phone call to installation was less than 48 hours. They came out, put a small directional dish on my roof and ran a single ethernet cable into my apartment. It was completed in under an hour and the link held a solid 100Mbps down and 40Mbps up on their highest speed plan.
"Since then I've maintained the same speeds."
