NBN Co's address checker tool can now tell you when NBN services will be available for your home or business, instead of just letting you know when the network will be rolled out in your area. It's gives a more accurate view of when the NBN is coming to your neck of the woods and you can try it out now.
Last week, NBN Co CEO Bill Morrow took a beating for claiming Australians won't use a gigabit broadband service, even if it was offered for free. He hit back at his detractors with a lengthy opinion piece, explaining his position. We take a look at some of the arguments he made and breakdown why they are flawed.
Telcos always wants to install new fixed-line services, including those on the National Broadband Network (NBN), during working hours; the most inconvenient time for a lot of people. They usually require someone at the installation premises and some people have to take time off work just to wait for a technician to come over. But it looks like there will soon be an after-hours installation service for the NBN - for a price.
NBNco expects to activate National Broadband Network (NBN) services across eight million premises in Australia by 2020. The company only has three years left to achieve this. After missing some rollout targets in the past and amid a wave of criticism, NBNco is pulling its socks up and expects the NBN to be "almost 50% complete by June 2017".
The NBN's Goldilocks technology of fibre to the distribution point (FttDP) -- sitting just right in between the convenience of fibre to the node (FttN) and the speed of fibre to the premises (FttP) -- is a step closer to becoming a reality in Australia. NBN calls the tech 'fibre to the curb' (FttC) for some unknown reason, rather than FttDP or fibre to the driveway, but it's earmarked Australia's own Netcomm Wireless as the supplier of tech for the future network build-out.
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, the company responsible for the National Broadband Network (NBN), has cancelled its plans to use Optus hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC) assets as part of its rollout and is going to deploy fibre-to-the-distribution point (FTTdP) instead. The technology, also known as 'fibre-to-the-driveway', provides faster broadband speeds compared to copper-based HFC. Here are the details.
nbn, the company responsible for the rollout of the National Broadband Network (NBN), has released its Annual Report, which outlines its operational and financial results from its last financial year for the Government. Most of the information in the document, including financial details and how the NBN rollout is tracking, were already covered off before, but the report did reveal just how much nbn spent on it IT and security in financial year 2016. Here's what you need to know.
We're getting a brand new National Broadband Network (NBN) Committee. The Australian Government has agreed to form one to keep a close eye on the NBN rollout, which is set to be completed by 2020. Sounds familiar? There used to be one that pretty much had the same responsibility until it was killed off after the 2013 election. Here's what's new.
