NBN Rollout and Entertainment
Is the NBN arriving in your neighborhood soon? What is the NBN rollout? What will this really mean for you, your family and friends, and the online entertainment you all enjoy?
While many of you are excited about the superfast speeds and reliable internet that NBN can bring, others are still scratching their heads and asking 'what's all the fuss about'? So let's take a look at what it is and why it's going to be a great leap forward.
First, let's look at the technical advantage over your existing network connection. When you switch over to the National Broadband Network, you'll be moving from copper to fibre optic cable. In terms of speed, that's like going from a house cat to a cheetah. Think Usain Bolt fast. NBN will give you faster internet and increased bandwidth, so you'll enjoy speedier downloads even with more people online at the same time.
More entertainment, all at the same time
Great entertainment means different things to different people. So let's imagine dad wants to watch the NRL, mum wants to catch her favourite TV series, and the kids want to play online games - all at the same time.
If that sounds like your household, then the NBN is just the solution you've been looking for. With the right plan, dad can be streaming the game live while mum downloads her show in seconds and the kids become the new champions online - everyone's happy!
How fast is fast?
At its greatest capacity, NBN offers speeds of up to 100 Mbps on nbnTM's highest Speed Tier. So if you've got a wired connection to your modem, it will take seconds rather than hours to download a 200MB TV show. Of course, it's never an exact science as many factors can maximise or minimise the speed you get.
And we know that not everyone uses the internet in the same way, so that's why we've created our super-flexible NBN Speed Packs. So if you spend your days and nights streaming live sport, movies or TV shows (and getting lost in Netflix), you can make sure you avoid the slow-down by adding on a superfast or supersonic speed pack to your Optus NBN plan.
Faster for streaming live sports
Compare it to a ball flying off a cricket bat or an explosive run from your favourite footie player, live streaming speed of up to 100 Mbps on nbn™’s highest-speed tier is a winner for Aussie sports fans. Say goodbye to pixilated pictures and hello to crystal-sharp HD.
Faster for online gamers
Whatever games you love playing online, NBN is going to be firmly on your side. With fibre optic cable, you'll experience less lag, fewer dropouts and uninterrupted action, even if other members of your household are online at the same time. Whatever game you're playing, NBN is a real game changer.

Speed: The range of speeds above are only an indication of what you may experience on your service. The speed you will experience depends on a number of factors including your access type, demand on the Network and local conditions such as internet traffic, your line condition, your hardware and software, the data source or destination and your location which can interfere with reception and speed.
