NBN rollout

Q. The big questions is when will the NBN coming to my area and what speed will it be?

A. This is the question many businesses and households around Australia are wondering. 

It seems not a day goes by without a nightly news controversy relating to the NBN.

Former Communication Minister Stephen Conroy the man responsible for driving the NBN until recently if nothing else proved to be a rather stoic character. 

It has been widely reported that the super high-speed fibre broadband will deliver business huge advantages and opportunities online. 

Critics will say it has been a huge waste of taxpayers money. Previously one such critic is the current Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

On April 9th 2014 the current Liberal Government Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced

“Tuesday’s orders that prescribe that download speeds of at least 25 megabits per second be available to all Australians, and download speeds of at least 50 megabits per second be available to 90 per cent of Australians, “as soon as possible”.

These are far less ambitious targets than the previous governments targets for NBN distribution and speed.

The Turnbull review highlighted the use multi-technology mix for building the network. That means it will use a combination of fibre to street cabinets and existing copper to connect premises, as well as all-fibre connections for greenfield estates, pay-TV cables where available, plus fixed-wireless and satellite connections where required.

The reason for this is simple. To save time and money building and deploying the NBN network.
