Getting Connected image of a  Satellite In rural and regional areas, as well as premises on the suburban fringe or in other ‘black spots’, the lack of cable or line-of-sight wireless access will mean that satellite delivery is the only option for broadband services. This will require the professional installation of an accurately aligned dish antenna.The National Broadband Network (NBN)’s interim satellite services were fully subscribed at the start of 2014, but you can buy your own service using non-NBN capacity. Communities may opt to form co-operatives that will allow them to buy services more cheaply. More NBN satellite capacity is expected to become available in 2015.
