Internet

Many of the local residents have switched to CRISP Wireless and businesses can save on VOIP phone calls and increased internet speeds. The CRISP Wireless network allows video streaming on multiple devices at the same time.

The Shire of Koorda has recently switched to CRISP Wireless and we are experiencing speeds that enable us to videoconference, saving us travel time.

Faster internet has been made possible through a Federal grant to the local governments of the North Eastern Wheatbelt Regional Organisation of Councils (NEWROC).

It’s not the NBN and it’s not satellite. Its point to point Fixed Wireless internet.

It’s a far superior service with up to 50 megabits per second upload and download.

The CRISP Wireless plans are competitive and their support team is in Australia.
