What is the NBN?

The National Broadband Network explained

Check availability at your address

e.g. 502 Hay St, SUBIACO WA 6008

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is rolling out fibre-optic, fixed wireless and satellite infrastructure to replace the existing broadband infrastructure with a faster and more reliable broadband service.

*Boasting download speeds of up to 100 megabits per second (that's four times quicker than the fastest ADSL2+ broadband currently available) the NBN is a game changer.

*Speeds could be slower and may differ due to various factors. Find out more about NBN speeds

The NBN is designed to replace Australia's existing, ageing copper network, which is no longer sufficient to support our growing demand for faster and more reliable internet connections. Whether you are getting connected by fibre-optic (called Fibre to the Home, or FTTH if you want to sound cool at parties), fixed wireless or satellite at your premises, you won't be disappointed by your NBN experience.

  • Upload photos

  • Download a movie

Uploading a wedding album

DSLR cameras and Photoshop are great, but uploading high-quality images and photos to the internet using ADSL can take an age, especially when you have a lot of them. With the NBN, large files will be a breeze to upload. This leaves you more time to take that perfect shot.

Estimated upload time
NBN up to 40Mbps (average 39Mbps): 20 to 30 seconds.
Standard on-net ADSL2+ (average 1Mbps): 15 minutes

Downloading a HD movie

Watching download progress bars slowly creep upwards is enough to drive anyone mad. With the NBN, high-quality video content can be downloaded in a fraction of the time it would take on a standard ADSL connection, making long waits to watch your favourite movies a thing of the past.

Estimated download time
NBN up to 100Mbps (average 88Mbps): 3 to 5 minutes.
Standard on-net ADSL2+ (average 12Mbps): 20 minutes.

Downloading a 10GB game.

Some days you wake up and decide "That's it. I'm re-downloading a game I started five years ago and removing it from my 'unfinished' pile." But it's 10GB in size, so it'll take forever to download right? Using an NBN connection, triple-A game titles will be ready-to-play in minutes, not hours. This means less time staring at a percentage sign and more time reloading your bow/shotgun/absurdly large space cannon.

Estimated download time
NBN up to 100Mbps (average 88Mbps): 15 to 30 minutes.
Standard on-net ADSL2+ (average 12Mbps): 2 to 2.5 hours.
