Northern Territory NBN
DID YOU KNOW? The Northern Territory has pioneered Australia’s telecommunications pathway since 1872 thanks to the Overland Telegraph, which connected our country to the rest of the world. The line between South Australia and the NT featured 36,000 telegraph poles and 11 repeater stations (necessary to boost the strength of the electrical signal), each about 200 kilometres apart*. Fast forward to 2021 and xx properties in the NT are now connected to the NBN, with some of the fastest speeds in the country (even in the bush!) If you work or reside in the NT and would like to connect to the world with our unlimited NBN plan starting at $44.90/month, please get in touch today.
