Options for your access technology
Through the soon-to-launch nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet product, we’re committed to giving you more business grade products to suit your needs.
Direct fibre is being built to comply to Metro Ethernet Forum specifications – providing you with access to a technology that adheres to international standards. nbn’s direct fibre product – nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet – provides phone and internet service providers access to wholesale symmetrical speeds from 10Mbps to 1Gbps (identical wholesale download and upload).* Talk to your phone and internet provider about the actual speeds you can expect to experience when you switch to an nbn™ powered plan – particularly during peak times.
Once the wholesale product is launched, nbn is planning to develop a roadmap to further expand and enhance on the wholesale speed and features available to phone and internet providers.

Even more choice
* Your experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ broadband access network, depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside our control (like your equipment quality, software, signal quality, broadband plans and how your service provider designs its network). nbn is a provider of wholesale speeds to internet providers. nbn™ wholesale speed tiers available to your internet provider vary depending on the access technology in your area.
