Located 450km off the coast of Cairns, Australia, Willis Island may be tiny but it’s importance to the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) – the country’s weather service provider – can’t be underestimated. Due to its remoteness, the weather station on the island often suffered from connectivity issues. Now, thanks to a new satellite service from nbn, the station is operating reliably 24/7. The team on Willis Island are now enjoying the benefits that the business nbn Satellite Service can bring. The nbn network is Australia’s broadband network.
