The Bitstream 3 eDMR product utilises an eDMR (wireless) link to deliver service to remote locations where it would be unfeasible to lay fibre. It was introduced as part of the Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI) contract to provide connectivity to specific sites, such as remote schools.
With the RBI roll-out completed and no ongoing demand for the product, we are providing notice that Bs3 eDMR will be grandfathered effective 26 November 2021.
On 26 November 2021 Bs3 eDMR will be moved to level 1 grandfathering, meaning:
- No new customers may obtain the product
- Existing customers can keep the instances of the product they already have
- If an existing customer moves, they cannot keep the product
- Existing customers cannot order more instances of the product.
There are currently no plans to withdraw Bs3 eDMR for existing customers.
Please reach out to your Account Manager if you have any queries.
