And the good news is that when NBN reaches you, your internet speed will get even faster!

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.

When you choose NBN with Optus, you have the power to select the internet speed that suits you.

You can add one of our NBN Speed Packs to our flexible plans anytime, so you never have to be without superfast internet speed.

Things that could affect your speed test

A few things can affect NBN speed at your place:

  • WiFi - connecting to your Optus modem with an Ethernet cable rather than WiFi is the most effective way to take advantage of NBN speed
  • Overseas content - downloading overseas content rather than domestic content takes longer because Australia is far away from most countries #whoopwhoop
  • Traffic jams - you can make sure your modem is prepared for multiple users by selecting one of our lightning-fast NBN Speed Packs.
  • Viruses - protect your devices against speed-stealing viruses and malware with security software
  • Pull vs push - with NBN we can supercharge your downloading ("pull") and uploading ("push") speeds #problemsolved

The technology behind NBN internet speed

NBN Fibre (including NBN Fibre to the Premise/FTTP, NBN Fibre to the Basement/FTTB and NBN Fibre to the Node/ FTTN) and NBN Fixed Wireless are the two main types of NBN connections.

NBN Fibre is more weather-resistant and multiple-user-resistant than ADSL2+. So superfast, reliable internet that passes the speed test never has to be out-of-reach. And unlike with ADSL2+ the distance from your exchange won't affect your internet speed when you're connected with NBN Fibre.

Another type, NBN Cable, is in the works. If you'd like to know when it's ready along with all other breaking NBN news when you sign up for our Optus NBN updates.
