OPINION The Shadow Minister for Communications and Member for Greenway Michelle Rowland, issued a media release titled 'Department slaps down dodgy Fletcher for misleading about fibre NBN'.
The Victorian Government is putting $73 million into the Victorian NBN State Program Fund to help finance new network infrastructure in certain parts of the state.
Telecommunications company Aussie Broadband has reached its 1000th NBN Enterprise Ethernet order.
The ACCC reported that about 400,000 residential broadband customers moved to higher speed plans in the June 2021 quarter as the recent trend of Australian consumers upgrading to faster NBN connections continued, as indicated its latest NBN Wholesale Market Indicators Report.
RSP Aussie Broadband has contracted Telstra Wholesale to provide it with backhaul capacity between 42 NBN POIs and data centres in the remaining areas not covered by Aussie's own network.
The ACCC said it has instituted separate proceedings in the Federal Court against each of Telstra, Optus, and TPG for making alleged false or misleading representations in their promotions of some 50Mbps and 100Mbps NBN plans, in breach of the Australian Consumer Law.
Macquarie Telecom announced it has established a new partnership with Australian not-for-profit Civic Disability Services. The partnership will create a digital foundation that will enable independent living opportunities for clients and free up time for essential disability support workers that can be better used providing care and assistance.
DGtek, an independent provider of ultra fast, full fibre broadband services and an alternative to NBN, has raised more than $7m, in a Series A round, to further expand its network reach across Australia.
Businesses in every corner of Australia can now access business-grade services on NBN's Business Satellite Service (BSS), with 100% of the mainland, large islands and hard to reach remote locations now open to retail service providers.
Over the quarter, Aussie Broadband has grown connections and revenue and expects EBITDA for the year excluding IPO costs to be at the upper end of the guidance provided on 28 May 2021 ($17 million to $20 million).
NBN announced that it will offer a COVID-19 relief credit payment totalling $5.2 million across eligible internet retailers to support the provision of additional data to meet increased customer demand for broadband services during the lockdowns in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia in July 2021.
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia has taken a 25% stake in two retail service providers that resell NBN services and says it will offer discounted plans to its customers through these two companies.
The media release from the Shadow Ministers today, was yet another example of misguided political point-taking in the overseeing of the NBN.
The federal opposition has issued a media release questioning statements by Minister Paul Fletcher on the topic of NBN staff bonuses.
NBN Co has awarded around $1.1 million worth of construction contracts as part of the $2.9 billion plan to upgrade large parts of the fibre to the node (FTTN) network to fibre to the premises (FTTP).
I regularly find that a clear understanding of purpose provides a great anchor for decision making.
NBN collaborates with non-for-profit Jawun to carry out its commitment of strengthening relationships and creating opportunities for indigenous people. It also laid out its ongoing commitments and remaining projects for the year.
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has found Telstra failed to suitably notify almost 50,000 customers that the maximum speeds advertised in their internet plan were not attainable with the NBN infrastructure available to them.
Not all non connections are capable of delivering the maximum speeds of higher speed NBN plans, and Telstra has apologised for not communicating this properly in the past, and said "we have made significant improvements to how we manage communicating nbn speed information to our customers", so what else does Telstra's California-based global connectivity and platforms exec, Sanjay Nayak have to say about it all?
Australia’s competition regulator the ACCC says a new regulatory model for the National Broadband Network is one step closer after a telecommunications industry roundtable last week brought together NBN Co, broadband retailers, industry groups, consumer representatives and government.
