Swoop press release – nbn® 1000
On Australia’s East Coast, hundreds of thousands more households and businesses will soon be able to sign up for Swoop’s new 1000/50 Mbps Ultrafast plan.
As a leading Fixed Wireless provider in Australia, we design, build and service our own Fixed Wireless towers – so we know our network inside out!
We are committed to building and supporting regional communities through funding initiatives, partnership programs and local employment.
The Mount Baw Baw project is funded by the Victorian Government’s $550 million Connecting Victoria program to fast-track connectivity across the state.
Swoop are committed to delivering fast, reliable, great value internet to regional areas across the state.
It’s never been more important to be connected – for family, community, work and safety – and in today’s digital world it’s no longer just an option, but a necessity.
Working with the Mount Magnet shire to build our Fixed Wireless network, our WA team provided residents access to fast and reliable internet. Without the Swoop network, locals were without modern connectivity, which meant everything from paying bills online, to streaming a movie was near impossible.
Mount Magnet Shire CEO – “It’s amazing to see this sort of infrastructure being introduced into a rural community like Mount Magnet. It is such a beautiful part of the world, and bringing this sort of internet speed offers the shire an opportunity to be connected with the rest of the world in a way we’ve never been able to before.”
Our SA team engineered and built an ‘open access’ tower network on the recently bushfire ravished Kangaroo Island, providing vital connectivity to those who were previously unable to access the internet for basic communication needs.
The project benefited all Kangaroo Island residents including farmers, tourists, council, local communities, and emergency services.
Meekatharra is a small, regional town in Western Australia that none of the bigger telcos wanted to touch. While the rest of the country transitioned onto the nbn®, Meekatharra was trudging along with ADSL2+, impacting how residents worked, learned, and played. That is, until Swoop worked with the town to bring Fixed Wireless.
For the first time in its history, this regional Western Australian town has reliable, high-speed internet to connect with each other and the rest of Australia. The entire project took just three months in total, from consultation to development and implementation, all during a global pandemic.
From day one, Fixed Wireless in Meekatharra has been a resounding success. “The improvement to services was immediate, marked, and dramatic,” said Tralee, Chief Executive Officer of the Shire of Mt Magnet.
