Amazing features.

Solid technology, clever engineering

We’re able to provide this NBN alternative to your home through the clever use of direct fibre and/or hybrid 5G fixed wireless internet + fibre broadband technology. Learn more about the magic behind Australia’s Lightning Broadband and compare the difference.

Symmetrical connection

Upload as fast as you download – our symmetrical connections are one of the aspects that sets us apart from other ISP NBN home plans. The plans above indicate standard/typical evening speeds!

Less congestion, low latency

While the residential broadband plans from all Australian ISPs are contended; i.e.  “up to 80 Mbps”, “Up to 50 Mbps”, etc.; Lightning Broadband prides itself on putting less people on the pipe than others by a country mile; so even residential users benefit from phenomenal speeds – perfect for streaming video.

Additionally, our services are also low-latency; which is crucial for online gaming and VOIP applications.

REAL unlimited broadband plans

The faster your internet connection speed is, the more data you’ll use – that’s why all our plans offer unlimited data. And unlimited means unlimited – no penalties, no speed reductions. The highest speed possible, all the time.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) options

Make cheap phone calls over your Lightning Broadband internet connection from just $10 a month extra! Learn more about our internet telephony plans.

Superb support

Our friendly team is based in Australia and just a phone call or email away to assist you with any questions you may have. We want to see you up and running as fast as possible – and to keep you that way.

Easy installation

Installation is a quick and easy process for our fixed wireless internet customers

  • Our team will install a small microwave receiver on your home’s antenna mast or on a small mast we can supply* if required.
  • A cable will then be run from the receiver to a wall plate installed in a convenient location in your home for connection to your WLAN compatible router (we can provide one *) or direct to your PC.
  • That’s it – then you’ll be ready to hit the web at breakneck speeds!

For our FTTB customers in provisioned buildings it’s even simpler; just plug your compatible router into the Lightning Broadband wall socket, choose your plan and you’re ready to go!

What is contention and why does it matter?

Contention is a technical term you may have heard in relation to broadband. We liken it to the difference between first class and economy on flights. It’s basically the ratio of users to the amount of available bandwidth resources.  If an ISP tries to assign too many people to a certain amount of bandwidth it can result in a very noticeable degradation of performance. This unfortunately is a common scenario – but not at Lightning Broadband. We assign resources based on maximizing our customers’ online experience, not our profit margins.
