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.
