The future of fast broadband is coming to Australian apartment complexes and in conjunction with NBN Co, we have been busy piloting high speed fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) technology right here in Melbourne.
NBN Co’s new technology is set to become one of the core components of the NBN Co’s network rollout and we are excited to be at the forefront of its delivery.
FTTB is where fibre is run to a large office building or apartment block and connected to NBN equipment in the comms room to enable high-speed broadband for end users in the building. From the comms room the existing in-building wiring is used as the final connection to the individual homes or businesses.
We’ve been piloting the technology with over 30 customers in Carlton. To date, we’ve clocked up over 10,000 testing hours. The results are really encouraging.
Helping you know how much data you are using when travelling abroad
Aussies love to travel and stay connected wherever they are. I often use my mobile when I am travelling internationally, usually to access my email, pull up live maps and keep in touch with friends and family back at home.
We realise how important it is for you to stay in control of your bill when roaming overseas. That’s why over the past 18 months we’ve introduced a range of improvements including data alerts, better value data packs and simplified roaming call rates.
