About Activ8me Broadband

Activ8me is an Australian internet service provider that also offers phone and satellite services.active8me

It began in 2008 as a provider of satellite broadband for rural, regional and remote communities and areas. However, in 2011 the company became an official NBN service provider and has since expanded into serving both metropolitan and rural areas – becoming one of Australia’s largest satellite internet service providers.

Activ8me is also notable for working with the Indigenous Communications Program, which works to improve access to essential telecommunication services in Indigenous communities.

Activ8me offers NBN broadband plans (fibre, fixed wireless, and satellite), as well as ADSL broadband plans. It also offers phone plans, both landline and VoIP, however it appears that while these can be arranged as standalone services, if you’re looking to bundle your phone and broadband, Activ8me only allows the bundling of ADSL broadband and a landline phone service.
