NBN Co's Interim Satellite Service

NBN Co Limited provides an Interim Satellite Service through its retail service providers. This service targets people without access to a commercial, metro-comparable broadband service, ahead of the launch of its long term satellite service in 2015.

Telecommunications in new developments

Arrangements are in place so the occupants of new developments have ready access to telecommunications, including through the deployment of fibre to the premises (FTTP) infrastructure. The early installation of fibre technology will give property buyers early access to the benefits of next-generation broadband and help avoid future retrofitting costs.
