Delivering superfast internet
The government has established to build and operate a National Broadband Network, delivering superfast broadband to Australian homes and workplaces.
The NBN Co. will build and operate a new network to deliver superfast broadband across Australia. The network will utilise a physical line running to the premises (FTTP, FTTB, HFC, FTTC, and FTTN), considered Fixed Line connections and supplemented by next generation wireless and satellite technology. The difference between each type of connection simply comes down to how we utilise existing network technology in connecting the nearest fibre node to a specific premise.
The National Broadband Network is the single largest infrastructure project in Australian history, having created tens of thousands of jobs over its eight year period in areas such as digging ditches, running the fibres, planning and engineering, connecting homes and businesses and supplying network hardware.
The delivery of the new service to the end user has required the installation of new customer premises equipment (CPE) and possibly new and upgraded cabling (external and internal) in residential, business and multi-dwelling environments.
