NBN (TC4 & Enterprise Ethernet)
When it comes to NBN, Australia’s national broadband network, services are not all created equal. While the availability of NBN services is increasing exponentially, the form and capabilities of these services varies widely.

NBN FOR SMEs
TC4 is a residential/SME class of service designed to provide best effort asymmetrical speeds up to 100Mbps download and 40Mbps upload. Ideal for use in locations with small teams and a lack of bandwidth hungry applications in use, or where price is the primary driver for your customer.
Unfortunately, with carrier support only provided between 8am and 5pm by default, our ability to restore services where the fault is due to a carrier issue is limited.
Looking for higher speeds or better support then NBN EE low COS is the option for you.

NBN TC4 plans are suitable for your small business clients that rely on general internet activities but don’t necessarily need specialised, high priority services. At Lightwire we offer the following NBN TC4 plans;
Please keep in mind that NBN TC4 services are best effort. If you’ve got clients with strict speed or support requirements, we recommend NBN EE.

In cases where FttC or FttN is in use, it is important to pay attention to the pre-qual results to see what the maximum attainable speed is at an address as it often varies.
