National Broadband Network Australia
Australia’s National Broadband Network (NBN) will be the largest investment in infrastructure in the country’s history. It will be a fiber to the home (FTTH), nation wide fiber optic network capable of speeds upwards of 100MB/s. The aim is to be able to reach 90% of Australian homes and businesses and reach the remaining via satellite and wireless systems. Considering how appalling internet services are for rural Australia at present, the NBN will be welcomed with open arms by many.
