According to a recent press release from NBN, “NBN Co revealed the latest list of suburbs and towns around Australia where an additional 900,000 homes and businesses are set to benefit from the extension of fibre deeper into communities, enabling access to the wholesale download speed tier of close to 1 Gbps on demand by 2023 if they order plans based on eligible wholesale speed tiers.”
This also extends to homes, which helps enable working from home, which is also extremely beneficial to businesses in today’s working landscape.
