When connected on a service with (for example) a 12/1 Mbps interface speed, you should not expect that everything that you download from the Internet will be received by you at 12 Mbps!
Important external factors affecting the actual speed include the capacity of, load on, and access data rate of:
In addition, local technical factors affecting performance include:
Hence NBN Wireless Broadband services can be described in terms of 'theoretical network maximum speeds' - noting that your actual speeds may be slower due to a number of factors beyond Internode's control.
The following theoretical maximum speeds are provided for the interest of technical enthusiasts. In essence, these are the specified "interface speeds" of the last mile connection to the premises.
However these should not be relied upon in making a purchasing decision, as real world usage is unlikely to consistently achieve such speeds, due to the factors described above.
The theoretical maximum access speed for Internode NBN Wireless plans is 12/1 Mbps. This means that the theoretical peak download speed (from the Internet) is 12 Megabits per second, and the theoretical peak upload speed (to the Internet) is 1 Megabit per second.
In the near future we plan to offer a higher speed option, with a theoretical peak download speed of 25 Megabits per second and a theoretical peak upload speed of 5 Megabits per second.
