Wireless Broadband 

Our wireless broadband services connect your home via a 4G or 5G wireless connection to our 4G or 5G mobile network. Wireless broadband speeds can be impacted by the distance between your modem and a cell site, the performance of your modem, your in-home WiFi setup, the level of usage of a particular cell site by others, network capacity, and the number of devices connected to your modem. Speeds may also be impacted by the location and quality of the websites you choose to view and the software you may have downloaded (malicious or otherwise). The day to day performance will also be affected by our Network. Any speed representations are averages and are not an indication of the actual speed of an individual connection. Speeds may be more or less than the average speed.

Wired Broadband 

Depending on the availability at your address we will offer you Fibre (or ADSL or VDSL, if applicable for $2 extra).

Service Restrictions

  • We block sites on the Digital Child Exploitation Filtering System.
  • We block sites that we believe (or IP addresses) are being actively used to promote malicious or fraudulent content.

Fair Use 

Wireless Broadband (including Unlimited Plans), Rural Broadband Services and Home Phone Services are subject to the Fair Use Policy. Your use of the Services must be fair, reasonable and not excessive, as reasonably determined by us by reference to average and/or estimated typical customer usage of the Services. We will consider your usage to be excessive and unreasonable where it:

  1. materially exceeds the average and/or estimated use patterns over any day, week or month (or other period of time as determined by us); or
  2. causes us to incur additional costs or affects the performance of the 2degrees Network or affects another 2degrees’ customers’ use of or access to the Services,

Excessive Usage.

Where we offer any Services such use is offered for your individual private and personal use and benefit only. In no case does any Service allow for activities aimed at making profit or reselling the Service or using the Service in an unfair or excessive way and any such use of the Services by you is a breach of this Agreement.

For the avoidance of doubt, fair use of our Services excludes activities such as auto-dialling, premium services, continuously call forwarding, tele-marketing, call centres or other activities that use our services for commercial gain and use of cellular trunking units (including SIM boxes and GSM gateways).

If in our reasonable opinion we consider your usage to be Excessive Usage we may immediately suspend, modify or restrict your use of the Services or withdraw in full or in part your access to the Services without notice to you and/or act in accordance with the Wire Broadband Traffic Management process set out above.

See our Fair Use Policy.
