BigAir "SkyRise" home broadband claims its offering gives Internet users speeds up to 200 times faster than dial-up. SkyRise, has speeds in both directions from 1Mbps up to 10Mbps in selected apartment buildings.
Jason Ashton, BigAir joint managing director, said packages start with its "Mach1 Starter Plan" (1Mbps upload and download) for AU$29.95 per month. They also offer the "Mach 10 Afterburner" package with speeds of up to 10Mbps.
BigAir's SkyRise is currently only available in a limited number of high-rise apartments in inner Sydney. However, BigAir said it is looking to "significantly expand this number based on demand".
BigAir said it is able to offer competitive broadband services because it has "complete autonomy with its own telecommunications network" and is not limited to the copper network like other broadband providers.
BigAir added that this also means that their service is available in many "broadband black holes" where ADSL and cable services are not.
The Internet service provider also offers enterprise-grade "fibre-in-the-sky" broadband solutions to large businesses with speeds ranging from 2Mbps up to 100Mbps.
