Successful launch for the first nbn™ satellite

04-Oct-2015

This week saw the launch of the first of two satellites that will provide Internet to 200,000 rural and regional Australians. Residents and businesses in rural and remote Australia are due to be able to order nbnTM satellite services in the first half of 2016.

For many people living in remote parts of Australia this may be the first time that they have had access to good quality Internet. This will dramatically improve the way people can communicate.

The satellite was on board an Ariane 5 rocket and was launched from French Guiana. It will be traveling 360,000kms to reach its destination. nbnTM ran a national naming competition for the satellite and the winner was a Northern Territory student who gave it the name Sky Muster.

Keep an eye on our nbnTM satellite page for details of when you can order your nbnTM satellite service. Pricing should be the same the other 

nbnTM  delivery methods that are used in Australia’s largest cities. Internet speeds of up to 25/5Mbps should be available. There is also discussion around the nbnTM restricting some peer to peer sharing services in order to ensure that performance is not threatened.
