Wireless broadband from $79.95

Wireless broadband looks within reach of the mass market, as Veritel on Friday launched plans starting at $79.95 per month.

The ISP has three plans, based on iBurst broadband, which offer wireless Internet access wherever there is iBurst coverage.

Coverage currently focuses on the Sydney metro area, but will expand to Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra this year.

Veritel’s managing director, Ivan Hurwitz, said he expected the new plans to significantly grow the subscriber base of wireless broadband in Australia.

The entry level $79.95 plan, Freedom eXpress, delivers wireless broadband at 1Mbps for 200MB of data. Once users exceed 200MB, access speed may drop to 64Kbps.

The $99.95 Freedom eXplorer plan provides 400MB of data, after which speeds can drop to 256Kbps during peak traffic times.

The Freedom eXtreme plan, at $174.95, provides 1GB of data with no rate shaping.

The iBurst technology, developed by US company Arraycom, uses smart antenna technology to deliver IP-based Internet services across the 5GHz unpaired radio spectrum band. The network promises end users download speeds of up to 1Mbps.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
