NBN Fixed Wireless Speed: Internet speeds indicated in the table are maximum theoretical speeds and are not an estimate of the speeds you will actually experience.

You will not experience these speeds at all times. Fixed Wireless speeds will be slower during the busy period, which is 7pm to 11pm for individual consumers and 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) for SMB consumers.

Factors such as congestion may significantly affect the Fixed Wireless services. You will typically experience slower speeds due to a number of factors including:

  • signal strength or obstruction of the antenna’s line of sight to the nbn Fixed Wireless tower;
  • the capacity of and demand on the nbn Fixed Wireless tower and network, especially during the busy period when more premises use the internet;
  • local conditions such as internet traffic, your hardware and software, your in-home set up, how you use the internet at home, the data source or destination, and your location; and weather conditions such as extreme heat and heavy rain.
Optus cannot ascertain the actual effect of these factors on an individual consumer’s Fixed Wireless service until after that service is activated. Optus relies on NBN Co to provide information on congestion on Fixed Wireless services.

Top Questions – FAQ

Answers to your most commonly asked questions


  • Why would I need a speed pack?

    If you tend to use multiple devices connected to the internet at the same time, performing data-heavy tasks such as gaming, downloading movies and streaming music or TV, then a speed pack may provide a better internet experience for you.

  • How long will it take for an Optus nbn speed pack to be enabled on my service?

    A speed pack is normally activated on your service within 24 hours of purchase.

  • Are speed packs on a contract or can I cancel after a month?

    No, there is no contract for speed packs. You can cancel or reinstate a speed pack at any time, on a monthly basis.

  • How do I check nbn broadband speed at my address?

    You can use our broadband speed checker to test your broadband connection. You should perform the speed test on a computer that’s connected directly to your modem via an Ethernet cable, as using WiFi may not give you an accurate result. Also, your web browser needs to be compatible with Flash to use the speed test.

  • Which modem do I need?

    We supply you with an nbn™-compatible WiFi modem when you purchase an nbn plan from us. You can either set it up yourself using the easy self-install kit or choose professional installation by an Optus technician at an additional cost of just $140.
