Since 2007 the NBN has been a contentious topic. Nearly every day, the NBN is discussed in newspapers; talkback radio shows and in social media feeds. All this media coverage combined with various commentators having different opinions and views, have created a fair bit of confusion around the NBN.
The NBN infrastructure rollout is due to be completed by 2020. Once this happens, the copper network will be decommissioned. This means that businesses of all sizes will have no choice but to plan for their migration.
What do Australian businesses need to know about the NBN?
The NBN consists of a mix of technologies including fibre-to-the-premise, fibre-to-the building, fibre-to-the-node, wireless fibre and high-speed satellite services. These different methods of delivery will give most Australians access to a fast-speed data service.
Before you sign your business up for an NBN plan it is important to consider the following:
What happens if the Internet speed you’ve been promised doesn’t get delivered?
How easy is it to upgrade your service when your business grows?
What service will be the best one for your business location?
How much will your NBN business plan cost?
Is the customer service call centre based locally and available 24/7 or is it based overseas?
