The NBN is a government initiative to construct a ‘Fibre to the Premises’ (FTTP) network throughout Australia. To achieve this, the Labor Party has created the ‘National Broadband Network Co Ltd’, to build an ‘Open Access Network’ which will eventually provide Australian households and businesses with download speeds of up to 1000 megabits per second supplied to up to 93% of businesses and homes. The NBN rollout will be the largest single infrastructure investment in Australia’s history. Want to know more? Read YOURLifeChoices special NBN enewsletter.
