The National Broadband Network (NBN) is an Australia wide project to upgrade the existing fixed line phone and internet network infrastructure. It is essential for Australia’s transition to a digital future. Fast broadband has the potential to fuel growth and drive improvements to local economies, businesses and homes, bringing new opportunities to the whole country.
What is the NBN?
The aim is to enable access to fast, reliable and affordable phone and internet services, from a range of providers. The NBN is designed to enable lifestyle enhancements including health, education, well-being, sustainability and wealth.
NBN Co is committed to closing the digital divide by providing access to a minimum level of broadband services to homes and businesses across Australia. Due to the nature and size of our country, NBN Co plan to use a mix of technologies to deliver the NBN, using the best fit solution for each area. The NBN is expected to be fully completed by 2020.
