Last week, NBN Co began installing Fibre-To-The-Curb (FTTC) broadband internet to various suburbs around Australia. (Originally, most of these homes were slated to receive the inferior Fibre-To-The-Node (FTTN) technology.) In all, more than one million Aussie premises are expected to receive substantial online performance boosts due to this rollout change. Here are all the suburbs that have been added to the FTTC list.

If it wasn't such a laugh, you'd cry. NBNCo, the company that will be delivering a patchwork of network technologies in order to bring fast broadband access to all of us has conducted a test using technology from Nokia that could deliver 10Gbps performance - if only FttP was on the menu for all of us.

Earlier today, the company behind the National Broadband Network (NBN) presented its half-year results to shed more light on the rollout. In a bid to keep costs down, fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) continues to be the main technology used, despite being demonstrably inferior to FTTP and HFC - both in terms of speed and reliability. Which begs the question: how much money does an FTTN installation actually save?

Last year, Adelaide revealed its ambition to become a "Ten Gigabit City" with plans to rollout a 10Gbps fibre broadband network. To put things in perspective, the National Broadband Network (NBN) offers up to 100Mbps download speeds in selected rollout areas.

South Australia's capital is wasting no time in trying to make its dream a reality. The Council of Adelaide is now recruiting international partners to help build the network. Here's what you need to know.

The company overseeing the National Broadband Network (NBN) rollout has signed a number of deals for the implementation of fibre to around 525,000 premises in Sydney and Melbourne. Most of them will be served by fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC). Here are the details.

The latest results from NBN lab trials of XG.FAST are in. Yes, that is the name of copper acceleration technology -- an extension of Nokia's commercially available G.fast technology -- not an antiperspirant spray designed to boost your masculinity. Basically, it's powering up the existing copper network to deliver fiber-like speeds, and has achieved lab results of 8Gbps over 30 metres of twisted-pair copper -- 900 times faster than the average broadband speed.

nbn has released its Corporate Plan for 2017-2010. If the government-owned corporation can be believed, the national broadband network is on track to connect 8 million active end users by 2020. But how many of these will be fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) compared to fibre-to-the-node (FTTN), hybrid fibre co-axial (HFC) and fixed wireless/satellite? This chart breaks down the numbers, along with how much each technology actually costs.

The Australian chapter of the global Internet Society has urged the government to re-assess its mixed technology model for the National Broadband Network during a Senate inquiry on Friday. Previously technology agnostic, the Internet Australia (IA) organisation changed its tune after the release of new fibre costings. It seems practically everyone wants an FTTP solution now, but will the government actually listen?
