The NBN has changed many times in complexity and composition, but it is now running at high speed and set for completion in the next two years. What does it take to get this mammoth task done?
This presentation will provide an overview of the current status of the NBN and discuss what the government can do with the NBN when the rollout is completed.
The National Broadband Network (NBN) should create long-term benefit for Australia. The most direct effect is to increase the availability of high-speed broadband. Based on publicly available information and census data, we can show where and by how much higher broadband speeds will be available to Australian households and businesses. In this presentation, we show maps of where broadband availability is improved by the NBN.
The NBN can make a difference both in terms of the geographical availability of broadband access and in the maximum access speeds provided. We find that the NBN will extend fixed-line broadband availability only marginally. In terms of access speed, we find that a further 17% of the population will have access to 10 Mb/s downstream and a further 65% of the population will have access to 25 Mb/s.
Rod Tucker and John de Ridder have written an open letter to Bill Morrow at NBN Co. proposing (a) that the volume of data should replace bandwidth (CVCs) as the basis for usage charging and (b) that the users should full access to the bandwidth capabilities of the NBN with the number of AVC speed tiers reduced to two.
NBN Co?s is rapidly coming to the realization that it has a PR issue on its hands. Many NBN retail customers are complaining about the quality of their service, and what is particularly frustrating for many customers is that it is not clear who to blame. Do they blame their retail service provi
The Australian telecommunications industry has been slow to call for or to adopt new practices and the National Broadband Network has exacerbated the problem of technology adoption lag. The cost of optical networking has significantly reduced over the past five years so there is no justification for the network congestion that occurs on Australian telecommunication networks.
This is a limited opportunity for TelSoc financial members to visit nbn's Network Operations Centre (NOC). The NOC is the nerve centre of the nbn network providing state of the art network monitoring 24 hours a day, 365 days a year of the entire national multi-technology network. It is a single point of contact for all of nbn partners to activate services, manage enquiries and to rectify nbn network faults. The NOC offers multi-tiered support for customers and the network.
The National Broadband Network is a focus of the June 2016 issue with four papers providing an insight into the nation?s largest infrastructure project. A historical paper on vibration measurement highlights how times have changed as the telecommunications networks evolve The Government?s review of the Universal Service Obligation has commenced with the Productivity Commission being tasked to inquire into how the universal service obligation might be updated to meet current and future needs.
