A broadband network for Australia's future

The "National Broadband Network" is designed for the future needs of Australia. It comprimises of three technologies - optic fibre, fixed wireless and next-generation satellite. The network will provide a more reliable, high-speed broadband access to all Australians.

Why do we need it?
Australia mostly relies on an ageing copper telecommunications network to connect homes to the internet. As a result, our broadband performance is quite far behind many of the world's more advanced countries.
The NBN will give every you greater access to goods and services, no matter where you live.

Effective participation in the digital economy will deliver positive benefits for Australian families and communities in the form of improved access to business and job opportunities, health, education and government services. The ability for poeple to share common interest will become easier through the rollout of high speed broadband to all Australian homes, businesses and community centres.

What do I need to do?
NBN Co is offering a free standard connection to the network when the NBN is rolled out in each suburb. This includes the standard installation of a network termination device (the box which provides connection to the NBN) at the premises of all consenting customers.
