Many businesses are finding it easier to build their brand and offer their products and services to the world with the help of fast internet over the nbn™ network. The ability to connect with people around the globe is particularly crucial for regional businesses, many of which wouldn’t be able to function without a fast broadband connection.
nbn™ Sky Muster™ and Fixed Wireless network services have changed the way rural and regional businesses work. In the past, hours were lost waiting for a file to upload or download, but with the nbn™ network, regional areas can now enjoy a fast broadband service, allowing them to spend less time in the office, and more time on the land.
Thanks to fast broadband, many remote businesses can now provide a more engaging customer experience. They can be more responsive online, connect with customers in forums and spread the word on social media about all the good things they're doing online.
Your experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ network, is determined by your service provider and the plan you choose and depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside our control (like your equipment quality and software). Satellite customers may experience latency.
