How Fast Will The NBN Be? What Will This Mean & How Much Time Will Be Saved
The rollout of NBN across Australia is expected to equip homes and businesses with superfast Internet speeds like never before. At its most efficient capacity, the NBN fibre-optic broadband network is expected to deliver speeds of up to 100 Mbps per second. At this extraordinarily fast speed, a 200-MB TV show can download in approximately 16 seconds. Downloading large files will virtually become a breeze.
The NBN speed experience is subject to a few conditions. For example, to get the fastest speed, you will need a wire connection between your modem and device, with no other computer accessing the modem. The speeds may also range between urban and rural areas. The speed of NBN will also depend on the demand for the network, Internet traffic, line conditions, software, hardware and the data source. It may also vary at different times of the day.
The NBN fibre optic broadband network is set to become the fastest Internet provided across the country. It can deliver higher capacities than all ADSL networks — even with several users connected to the same network at the same time. Even the most basic NBN network speed will deliver up to 12 Mbps per second — which is still pretty good for home web browsing and video browsing. Australian SMEs may want higher Internet speeds for accessing web-based applications, live streaming, video conferencing and much more. NBN can range anywhere from 12 Mbps to 100 Mbps over the NBN. Upload speeds can range from 20 Mbps to 40 Mbps over the fibre optic network. This incredible speed will help businesses take their operations to the next level with enhanced Internet engagement for multiple business functions.
These heightened Internet speeds will enable several people access the same online network together, with many devices using up significant amounts of data — this is great news for small Australian businesses who want to expand their business operations across markets and geographies.
The NBN rollout enables the Internet to be sold in different speed tiers by service providers. At Telesurf for example, Tier 1 is good for residential use, offering download speeds up to 12 Mbps. Tier 2 works for heavy residential use with download speeds up to 25 Mbps and upload speeds of 5 Mbps. Tier 3 is a good solution for small businesses — offering download speeds up to 50 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 20 Mbps. Tier 4 is perhaps most optimal for businesses, offering incredible download speeds up to 100 Mbps and uploads of 40 Mbps for the most futuristic Internet use!
Upgrading to NBN will equip small businesses with faster Internet speeds to help them access state-of-the-art technologies, robust ecommerce solutions and high-quality videos to propel their business to the next level. In the future, NBN Co. promises to deliver speeds even higher. The fibre optic network will start reaching download speeds of up to 1000 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 400 Mbps, so keep an eye on this space for future upgrades from Telesurf. This will change the way Australians do business — with enhanced ability to interconnect and collaborate on several platforms more efficiently. This is sure to give a whole new meaning to the term ‘super-connected’.
