NBN Co is set to more than double wholesale broadband speeds for people who live in rural and remote Australia.
More than half a million homes, farms and businesses which are eligible to receive the NBN's Fixed-Wireless and Long-Term Satellite services will be able to take advantage of retail internet services that are based on the wholesale download speeds of up to 25 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 5 Mbps.
In terms of the upload speed, the wholesale speed boost is up to five times faster than the current speed.

I live in rural Victoria in a small township of about 700 people called Dereel. It has a mix of traditional Aussie bush land and undulating green fields full of grazing sheep.
It's a nice place to live if you like seeing a sky full of stars at night, clean air, lots of space and nothing but the sounds of nature to wake you in the morning (although the cockatoos do sometimes push their luck!)
What we don't have is a lot of services people in large towns or cities get.

Here’s the news you’ve been waiting for!
Prime Minister Julia Gillard just announced stage one of the National Broadband Network’s wide-scale rollout plan.
Over the next three years, construction of the fibre optic component of the NBN will be underway or completed in areas containing 3.5 million premises, in 1,500 communities across every state and territory in Australia.
