Malcolm Turnbull says the cost-benefit analysis of the NBN shows the Government is on the right track, but the opposition says it endorses a "second-rate" rollout plan.
After announcing the NBN would incorporate a mix of technologies, NBN Co has connected customers using Fibre to the Node technology.
Despite a strong year for the ISP, iiNet's CEO has said he is "furious" about the slow rollout of the NBN in Australia, and "frustrated" by proposed data retention policies.
With broadband supply outstripped by demand and satellite services already at their limit, NBN Co is expanding its satellite offering for remote communities.
As towns across Australia wait their turn for the NBN rollout, one town is stuck in broadband no man's land and says it has "disappeared off the map".
Fibre to the Node technology for the NBN is one step closer as NBN Co and Telstra partner to launch 1,000 new node sites in QLD and NSW.
Is the NBN coming to a town near you? A new interactive map is giving Australians more information about when the broadband network is coming to their neighbourhood.
Fifteen Australian towns are farewelling the country's century-old copper network as the first NBN switchover takes place, but residents still need to act to avoid losing communications altogether.
NBN Co has announced that demand for broadband in rural Australia has far outstripped what was originally anticipated, and that an extension of the network will be required to better serve Australian users.
NBN Co has admitted it needs to focus on connecting Australian homes to fast broadband, rather than just building infrastructure.
