Government and the nbn® access network

Giving people the choice to engage online.

With widespread digital transformation on every government’s mind, nbn can provide the network foundation that helps government change the way citizens are engaged and informed – as well as opening up the possibilities of secure cloud services from a wide range of digital services providers.*

Make decisions through data-driven insights

Cloud-based computing power is changing the way governments make decisions, by processing the wealth of ‘big data’ from citizens and the Internet of Things in the cloud. nbn can provide the network backbone that supports cloud-based computing.*

Enhance the citizen-government conversation

A seamless and successful user-experience is just as important to a government department when they're engaging with their citizens as it is to a big multinational company. With connectivity such as through a connection over the nbn™ broadband access network, dialogue can be created over social media and other channels, helping citizens to engage and feel part of the way they're governed.

Explore the possibilities of the Internet of Things (IoT)

From rural agriculture to the challenges of city management, the IoT could deliver benefits like operational efficiency, remote management and maintenance of assets, and sustainability. By connecting the plethora of devices, services over the nbn™ access network can support the creation of that web of data and control.*

What the nbn™ access network can do for government

Security is perhaps the most important concern in government, especially when it comes to citizen's data – with back-ups of the data also extremely important. business nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet product available to service providers supports rapid back-up. You’ll also want high-speed connectivity to support the IoT and ‘big’ data, so you can make near–real time decisions. Speak to your service provider about the options available over an nbn™ powered plan that offer the most security and the best user-experiences.*

* Your experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ broadband access network, depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside our control (like your equipment quality, software, signal quality, broadband plans and how your provider designs its network). nbn is a provider of wholesale speeds to phone and internet providers. nbn™ wholesale speed tiers available to your internet provider vary depending on the access technology in your area.
