Congestion, and outages across the national broadband network have remained at low levels, with no material increase compared to previous months due to increased usage across the network during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to NBN Co chief executive Stephen Rue.

According to Rue, while the increases are significant compared to the Pre-COVID-19 benchmark, they remain well within the capacity headroom built into the NBN.

“For NBN Co, our priority is to ensure that all Australians, no matter where they live or their circumstances, can connect to a high-speed, secure broadband network and continue to have access to the employment, education and entertainment opportunities that this technology enables,” he said in a speech at a Sydney business summit on Tuesday.

“I can assure you we are using all of our resources and drawing on local and overseas expertise, to help keep the nation connected, productive, educated and informed through this crisis, as well as being able to stream video on demand.”

Rue also said it was important for NBN Co and the telecommunications industry to work closely together to support Australians through the COVID-19crisis.

“Now, more than ever, it is absolutely critical we work together as an industry to help the nation stay connected,” he said.

“By working together, I have no doubt that our industry will rise to this challenge and help the nation when it needs us most.”

NBN Co announced on Monday that doctors in general practice clinics will get free delivery of enhanced telehealth services with upgrades to the system delivered by the company  in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We also provide 3 videos in one recording/sitting if you require so that you have a series of videos to promote to your customers. Your sales team can add your emails to sales collateral and to the footer of their sales and marketing emails.
