It’s amazing to think that at the start of the millennium it didn’t exist – yet now the nbn® network supports so much of what we do every day. It’s truly changed the Australian way of life.
The company was established in 2009 by the Commonwealth of Australia as a Government Business Enterprise (GBE) with a clear direction – to design, build and operate a wholesale broadband access network for Australia.
And we’ve done just that – creating a network that criss-crosses a country, and allowing internet retailers to provide reasonably priced broadband services to consumers and businesses.
The network is the digital backbone of Australia and is constantly evolving to keep communities and businesses connected and our nation productive.
We believe everyone should enjoy the benefits so we’re breaking down the barriers which prevent some of our most vulnerable people from taking advantage of the digital world.
And we know we are going to be around for a long time and that’s why we take sustainability seriously - it’s all about looking after people and the environment so we hand down a healthy planet to our children. We work hard to have a sustainable business so we can invest back into the network right across Australia.
Because we’re Australia’s network. We’re the nbn network.
