nbn’s purpose is to connect Australia and bridge the digital divide. nbn exists to provide local network access to fast broadband to every home and business in Australia. The nbn™ local access network connects with Retail Service Providers’ (RSPs) domestic transmission networks and international networks to deliver fast broadband.
nbn has a commitment to deliver access to peak wholesale download data rates of at least 25 megabits per second (Mbps) to all premises, and at least 50 Mbps peak wholesale download data rates to 90 per cent of the fixed line network. This ambition of universal connectivity is unique to Australia given its expansive geography and population.
nbn, together with RSPs, is bringing fast broadband to all Australians and will allow the nation to unleash its full digital potential. It will fundamentally enable Australia to become a more connected, more competitive and more innovative nation.
nbn, in conjunction with RSPs, is helping bridge the divide between city and country; young and old; Australia and the rest of the world. The rollout of the nbn™ network is one of the largest and most complex infrastructure developments in Australia’s history, covering even the most remote and inaccessible areas of Australia.
