NBN, Australia's wholesale broadband provider announced the launch of its Sky Muster Plus wholesale product, designed to provide homes and small businesses in the nbn satellite footprint to access unmetered data for essential online activities.

The ability to stream entertainment with the confidence it will not affect day-to-day activities such as internet banking and email was an important factor for residential customers. People who use the internet for business or work, whether regularly or from time-to-time, made up two-thirds of the survey sample, and were particularly satisfied with Sky Muster Plus compared to their previous service.

Activities including select web browsing, email, and PC and smartphone operating system updates do not count towards the plan’s monthly data allowance. All other online activities such as video and audio streaming remain subject to monthly peak and off-peak metered data allowances, with wholesale speeds being slowed if data limits are exceeded.

Stephen Rue, CEO, NBN Co
Our Sky Muster satellite services are a critical part of that, and I’m delighted to officially announce the launch of our new Sky Muster Plus product.
