NBN launched fixed wireless broadband in Lismore in April 2015.
This delivers faster broadband internet than the old copper wire service. Copper wires may not be maintained in rural areas.
Rural users bay find the best choice for internet is fixed wireless broadband or satellite, such as Skymesh.
There will be a discussion about all this in Lismore on 1 Feb 2017.
