What Is mmWave Technology?

Speed You Can Rely On

As the world becomes more and more dependent on the internet, the need only increases for ultra-fast, reliable networks to deliver that speed.

Regardless of the significant investment made over the last 10 years in rolling out the NBN, many Australian’s are still suffering from slow, and inconsistent internet speeds. Speeds which mean businesses can’t be as productive as they would like to be, and consumers are frustrated with slow streaming, drop-outs and high latency during peak periods.

The GigaComm Difference

The majority of internet providers in Australia deliver their services through the NBN, placing them at the mercy of the limited speeds it can provide. However, there are new technologies which are delivering super-charged speeds, at prices that people can afford - without the many frustrations consumers have experienced with NBN services and support.

Our independent network is entirely separate from the NBN. Incorporating mmWave fixed wireless, we deliver the typical high performance, speed and reliability you achieve with fibre but without the cost, time and delays of laying cables.

Also because we are independent of the NBN, we’re not weighed down by the NBN wholesale costs that other internet providers have to pay.

As a result, we’re able to deliver fast, affordable internet with fantastic customer service.

GigaComm’s independent network is harnessing these latest technologies by using a combination of the newest fibre and next-generation wireless technologies, known as millimetre wave (mmWave), to connect homes and businesses across Australia to consistent Gigabit speed internet.

The Future Of Australian Internet 

mmWave is a short-range, high-frequency wave. As the mmWave has a shorter wavelength, it can hold more data and this makes the mmWave ideal for the modern, ultra-fast internet we all need to work, learn, stream, and play games online! 

While it leverages the same advanced technology as 5G, GigaComm uses a higher capacity millimetre wave spectrum to provide fixed ultra-fast internet. However, unlike 5G you won’t have to compromise between speed and download limits.

GigaComm’s technology removes these constraints so you can have ultra-fast, symmetrical Gigabit speeds AND unlimited data. That means you have internet that supports you to do the things you need to do any time of the day.

The GigaComm solution creates a network of nodes on top of buildings or street-level assets, such as lights. mmWave beams connect these nodes together to create multi-point to multi-point coverage.

Once your building is covered, GigaComm connects to the building’s existing wiring to deliver Gigabit services. Multiple signal paths ensure traffic is automatically rerouted if one path becomes congested, allowing for a much faster internet connection.

As a result, GigaComm’s Network can deliver speeds up to 15x faster than the Australian average and that’s how people, businesses and communities are going to be able to truly harness all the benefits that cloud-based services can bring.
