National Broadband Network Update

You may have heard that NBN Co. rebranded to just nbn™ or that they've been hard at work rolling out their new multi-technology mix model, which will incorporate parts of the Optus Cable network into the NBN. But that's yesterday's news, right? Yawn no more! Here are the latest updates on the National Broadband Network.

A million Aussie homes with superfast internet

The rapid rollout of the NBN network across Australia continues, with nbn™ edging closer to its goal to connect eight million premises by 2020. Over 1.3 million homes and businesses now have access to the NBN, and the number of premises with an active NBN service more than doubled to 486,000 in the last financial year! Which leads us to...

Fibre to the Node technology launch

nbn™ has officially launched Fibre to the Node (FTTN), and Optus isn't wasting anytime - we've already put in our first orders! The initial FTTN rollout was trialled by nbn™ in Belmont, NSW, and saw users hitting superfast speeds of up to 100Mbps/40Mbps. nbn™ aims to have 500,000 FTTN premises ready for service by mid-2016 and 3.7 million by mid-2018.
