The National Broadband Network (NBN) is an Australian government initiative designed to facilitate delivery of high-speed broadband to all Australians. It is an open access telecommunications network which will be based on three technologies: optical fibre, fixed wireless and satellite.
The current technology is based on dated copper wiring, which not only has its speed limitations but also is much more prone to environmental interference. The vision for NBN Co (the national, government-owned wholesale provider) is to connect every home, school and workplace in the country within the next decade.
The Australian Government has forecast completion of the NBN by 2020.
The new NBN network will provide high-speed access to 93 per cent of Australian homes, schools and workplaces via an optical fibre connection on completion.
As the NBN roll-out progresses, your fixed broadband and telephone service will be migrated onto one of the three technologies (fibre, fixed wireless or satellite). The migration process will cause minimal disruption to services.
SpinTel is committed to offering NBN services in the short-term future.
Once available (both from a product and roll-out perspective), all existing fixed-line broadband and telephone services will be eligible for migration to NBN. If your service is eligible for NBN migration, we will contact you to provide you with information on how and when this will occur. Once processing of such a change is undertaken, there will only be minimal disruption to your service.
We remain dedicated to providing the best value NBN services to our customers coupled with unrivalled customer service.
