The National Broadband Network (NBN) is Australia’s new network for fixed line phone and internet services. Our aim is to give your business access to fast, reliable and affordable services from a range of providers. Due to the nature and size of our country we plan to use a mix of technologies to deliver the NBN, using the best fit solution for each area. It’s important to check your business address to find out about the roll out in your area, as the steps to prepare for installation differ for each location.
The NBN is essential for Australia’s digital evolution to support future economic and social growth. Economic growth and technology are intrinsically linked and this makes investment in the NBN for Australia crucial. The digital economy demands a fast and reliable network to enable; access to new markets, opportunity to reduce costs and drive innovation as well as gaining competitive edge on the global stage.
