About Fixed Wireless broadband

What is Swoop’s exclusive Fixed Wireless broadband?

Our Swoop Broadband Fixed Wireless Internet network is the high-speed alternative to conventional household fixed-line internet, such as nbn™. Traditionally, your internet will be delivered to your home through cables in the ground, and these cables can be old, worn out, and expensive to fix.

With Fixed Wireless, Swoop Broadband bypasses these legacy networks by installing an antenna at your home or business which talks wirelessly to one of our communications towers, which can be located up to 30km away. No phone line and no nbn required! Simply plug your router into the professionally installed data point in your wall and prepare for life in the fast lane.

We are expanding our Fixed Wireless service Australia wide, meaning there will be more home wireless broadband options available, including across Melbourne, Adelaide, and more areas coming soon.

Why should I choose it over nbn®?

More than 60% of Australians can’t get over 100 Mbps on their nbn® service. If your home nbn® connection is failing you, don’t feel stuck. Our Fixed Wireless network provides the best solution for thousands of happy Australians who were hampered by their existing service.

Is Fixed Wireless the same as broadband?

When we talk about our Fixed Wireless internet, we are referring to broadband, so yes, fixed wireless here is the same as broadband.

Is broadband better than Wi-Fi?

It is common for people to refer to the terms broadband and Wi-Fi interchangeably. While the two technologies are closely related, you can’t have home or business Wi-Fi without first having a broadband connection.

Broadband is your internet connection. You can have different types of internet connections, such as ADSL, fibre, satellite, or mobile services.

To have Wi-Fi in your home requires having a broadband connection first. Wi-Fi transmits data between devices and a modem.

Do I need a landline for fibre broadband?

It is interesting to note that over the past two years, searches for ‘internet plans including phone lines’ have declined by 90%.

In short, no. You do not need a landline for fibre broadband. This is because our Fixed-Wireless broadband utilises high-capacity mobile networks in order to connect you to the internet.
