Ericsson chose NetComm to provide advanced fixed-wireless devices needed to connect rural and regional Australian households and businesses to the 2.3GHz fixed-wireless LTE broadband network.
 
This comes in the wake of the NBN Co. appointing Ericsson to build and operate its $1.1 billion fixed-wireless broadband network.
 
NBN is tasked to make high-speed broadband available to any Australian regardless of where they live, with the final 7% of premises in areas of low-population density to be reached by wireless or satellite.
 
NetComm will provide fixed-wireless LTE devices to connect premises to the NBN Co’s LTE broadband network with a three year window to complete, starting mid-2012.
