Critical Information Summary

Fixed Wireless


Information About the Service

DCSI Fixed Wireless delivers high-speed internet access over a mixture of wireless access technologies. It is not a 3G/4G Mobile service but instead involves an antenna installed on the rooftop of the customer premises, cabled to a router indoors.

Requirements and Availability

DCSI Fixed Wireless services are only available to premises that meet a service qualification check. Serviceability is not guaranteed by service qualification. Line-of-Sight (LoS) obstruction may cause your premises to be classed as unserviceable or require additional infrastructure in order to be serviceable.

LoS can degrade over time due to new construction, vegetation growth or other obstructions. DCSI is not responsible for issues affecting LoS that are outside of our control.

Installation

DCSI Fixed Wireless services require roof access to install a permanent antenna to connect to DCSI's Fixed Wireless Network. DCSI will also need to be able to install a cable from the roof to your desired router location ("demarcation point") – for example in a home office or business comms room.

You will need to be in attendance for the installation of DCSI Fixed Wireless equipment at your premises.

DCSI Fixed Wireless services require a compatible router to be configured with your service details. DCSI provides a standard wireless router with all DCSI Fixed Wireless services. Upgraded router options are available for an additional cost.

Minimum Term

There is no minimum term and you can cancel your service without incurring any additional fees.
