Australia is preparing for a big change in the way they connect to the internet. Reportedly, the National Broadband Network is getting ready to triple internet speeds throughout the country at no expense to the consumers. This will improve home and business connectivity drastically as download and upload speeds will increase up to tenfold, a truly unprecedented feat for Australia.

Australia Improves Its Connectivity

Using the Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) technologies, NBN will give a five-fold speed boost to home internet, scaling from 100/20 Mbps to 500/50 Mbps. There will even be Superfast and Ultrafast options with 750/50 Mbps and 750-1000/50-100 Mbps respectively.

This incredible increase in Internet speed is set to change the way Australians browse the internet. It means smoother streaming, seamless browsing, and flawless gaming experiences on several devices around a single household. Apparently, NBN is planning this connectivity revolution to take place within the next 12 months. It will certainly meet the growing demand for high-speed, low-latency broadband.

Building the Digital Infrastructure of the Future

NBN’s upgrades seem to be part of a larger plan to introduce Australia’s digital infrastructure to the future. Millions of homes and businesses will be positively affected by the connectivity upgrades and it’s all part of a bigger vision NBN has for a hyper-connected future.

A big role in the success of this endeavor will be allocated to internet retailers throughout the country. With their collaboration, NBN is set to make the seamless transition of higher download and upload speeds possible. Part of this effort is ensuring that users have all the necessary up-to-date equipment, like modems and routers that can use accelerated speeds. If NBN’s plans to move forward with modern technologies and innovations all come to fruition, Australia will be all set for the future; at least, until some better breakthrough comes around.
