National Broadband Network – Next Generation Network

Written By Sam on 18 May 2015

Gone are the days when you had to wait for hours or even days to download your favorite movies and computer games that are few GB’s in size. I still remember my school days, where I had to wait for few minutes to download a 100KB image over a 56kbps Dial-up Internet. But then, technology had changed very dramatically and now we have Broadband with speeds around Mbps that allows us to download our favorite videos, images, software in just few minutes or even seconds of time. The best thing I love about Broadband is – “always on”, avoiding the need to connect and disconnect. Though we might see different terminologies related to the Internet – Dial-up access, Multilink dial-up, ISDN, Leased lines, Cable Internet access, DSL, ADSL, SDSL, VDSL, Fiber to the Home, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, Satellite broadband, Mobile broadband, National Broadband Network (NBN), one thing that is very important for us is the speeds with which we will be able to download or upload our data.


Recently when I was reaching about Broadband Internet, I came across National Broadband Network or the commonly called NBN which is a national wholesale-only, open-access data network that is under fast development in Australia. Broadband connection like NBN gives you speeds around 40Mbps that helps you download HD images in fraction of second, HD movies in less than five minutes or a 10GB game in less than half an hour. Basically with NBN, the good old copper cables will be replaced by fibre-optic cables that will help you get faster and reliable Internet connection even in adverse weather conditions.

National Broadband Network (NBN) can come to your house via NBN Fibre, NBN Fixed Wireless or NBN Satellite based on multiple factors. With any of the NBN type, you will get high speeds up to 100Mbps and moreover getting NBN at your house is a very simple process. So, if you are looking for high speed Internet then give a though on NBN.
