It will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary within BigAir. According to a statement to the ASX, BigAir plans on installing a high speed fixed wireless backhaul networking into each AccessPlus student accommodation site, interconnecting with high speed local access wired and wireless networking installed and owned by AccessPlus.

The statement claims the companies share good synergies in this regard.
