NBN Rollout is formally complete... but what’s next?
Michael Speglic • Published Sunday, 14th February 2021
You may have heard the NBN network has been rolled out and completed in 2020. That’s true but it doesn’t mean the work on the network is finished!
The change to a Multi Technology Mix (MTM) rollout was all about getting the network in place as quickly and efficiently as possible, something that was of immense benefit to the country with COVID and the transition to work from home that was widely adopted and facilitated by the NBN network.
The next phase is all about upgrading the network to convert two million Australian households from fibre-to-the-node to fibre-to-the-home by 2023 as part of a $3.5 billion investment into the National Broadband Network. A further 2.5 million households have access through upgrades to the Hybrid Fibre Coaxial network and another 1.5 million through the newer fibre-to-the-curb network.
NBN Co’s future is to optimise the NBN network and upgrade the infrastructure over time.
NBN Co are well equipped to respond to progressing technology and are already exploring options for the future. These include G.fast and XG.FAST that could include faster NBN speeds in the future for Fibre to the Node (FTTN), Fibre to the Basement (FTTB) and Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) customers.
