Uni students linked via BigAir

Australian scholars will be linked to online learning, conferencing and researching with BigAir's high speed Internet.

Students at three of Australia's leading universities, Macquarie University in Sydney, RMIT University in Melbourne and Griffith University in Queensland are benefiting from new high-speed broadband from BigAir and distributor, Star-Tech Communications.

Together they offer students unlimited pre-paid and post-paid Internet access packages, which facilitate online learning, enhanced research capabilities, past study notes and past exams.

The university students also received backhaul installations at a cost of up to 40 per cent less than competitors' copper and fibre-optic offerings.

Richard Parker managing director at Star-Tech said the upgrade would enable students through online collaboration, conferencing and research, BigAir's superior high speed broadband supply, with speeds up to 10Mbps.

"Since BigAir has a carrier-grade wireless broadband network, it was able to install the high-speed broadband connection within just a few days - beating other suppliers hands down on speed, service and pricing,” he said.

Around 1,500 student dorms are benefiting from the combination of BigAir's wholesale symmetric broadband and Star-Tech's automated in-building distribution, on-line subscription and billing and help desk services.

Star-Tech engineers were able to use a complex combination of proven technologies to deliver into often-difficult campus environments.

Griffith University campus will soon also be Wi-Fi enabled, said Parker.
