How is the NBN different from what we have now?

The NBN will provide Australian homes, schools and businesses with faster internet, at 100Mbps – which is faster than what we have now. The network will connect 90 per cent of all Australian homes and businesses with optical fibre instead of existing copper wires.

Using the next generation wireless and satellite technologies, the NBN will also provide faster internet speeds for more remote parts of rural Australia, delivering speeds of up to 12Mbps. The NBN will be Australia’s first national wholesale-only open access broadband network
