What is the NBN?

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is Australia’s first national, wholesale only, open access, communications network. The NBN  is being built to bring high speed broadband and telephone services within reach of all Australian premises. The NBN will utilise mixed technologies; fibre, copper, fixed wireless and satellite and is expected to improve the ways for you to connect with one another. Within the next decade the plan is for every home, school and workplace in the country to have access to the NBN.
