For Australians who aren't happy with the NBN speeds they'll get under a "multi-technology" rollout, NBN Co's Technology Choice program will now offer build upgrades -- for a price.
Australia's NBN multi-technology mix rolls ever forward, with NBN Co announcing new technology that will bring gigabit speeds to existing HFC cable networks within two years.
A new deal will see NBN Co take over ownership of Telstra and Optus' legacy copper and HFC networks, saying it will help connect customers to a "multi-technology" NBN more quickly.
As part of its "multi-technology" rollout, NBN Co has confirmed only those areas in "advanced stages" of FTTP build will get the technology, with all other premises getting FTTN. But paying to upgrade is now officially on the table.
With a "multi-technology approach" now the official delivery method for the country's broadband network, NBN Co has announced the first regions to get FTTN.
The CEO of NBN Co has warned against 'criticising the copper', defending the use of Telstra's existing network to deliver the NBN more quickly and for less money.
After announcing the NBN would incorporate a mix of technologies, NBN Co has connected customers using Fibre to the Node technology.
With broadband supply outstripped by demand and satellite services already at their limit, NBN Co is expanding its satellite offering for remote communities.
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.
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.
