NBN Top Five Reasons it’s the ultimate broadband format

Many other broadband internet formats have been introduced to the ISP markets over the years: dial-up, ISDN, ADSL, Cable, 4G, and now fibre based broadband, or more commonly known locally as NBN, the National Broadband Network.


Where many other older formats have been upgraded and replaced, NBN seems to be a much more dynamic format. It carries more features that are upgradeable, even adaptive to its subscribers. It has more options that fit the subscriber’s situation or conditions, as well as its more business-friendly approach to service and performance. And of course, its speed and reliability, especially pure fibre or FTTP type connections, remain unmatched so far.

Let’s take a look at some of these leading features that could very well prove how NBN may be the key broadband format of all.

Adaptive to change and tech trends

Two main reasons why other older formats got left behind by succeeding new broadband formats is because of its lack of adaptability and upgradeability. Although ADSL evolved into VDSL, and 3G was succeeded by 4G and now 5G, NBN holds many features that are ready for future evolution (4G is in use with wireless NBN). These are in line with tech trends and the latest broadband technology, and easily apply with the fibre format. This makes it easier to continue using the same format while it stays along with the progress of broadband internet, rather than being replaced by a new format or method of delivery.

Suitability for business applications

Most businesses will eventually shift to fibre. This may not be widespread fact now, but it will become a necessity once NBN has garnered a majority share of the broadband footprint. There are many reasons that make this a necessity rather than a choice but we’ll boil them down to a few main ones; For one, the speed and reliability of the NBN is more suited for a business setting. Two, many NBN business bundles have telecommunications elements that are not found anywhere; and Three it can service mass usage along with its telecommunications components better than any other format available today.

Competitive pricing

While other broadband formats may be in the public price range, NBN plans and bundles remain competitive given the fact that it is by far the more advanced and better broadband solution available in the ISP markets out there. Inter-comparison shows a price range not too far behind other leading non NBN formats. What’s more, aside from obvious differences in speed and reliability are new emerging bundle markets, such as the aforementioned business NBN, Netflix / Internet TV, Gaming, and a few others. You simply don’t get these deals from other formats.
Options, options, options

NBN has options and sub-options to choose from, all applicable to different needs, situations, and subscriber conditions. Compared to other formats, this makes it more flexible to a wide variety of factors. Again, we have its adaptability and dynamics applied to a subscriber level. It is either a Fixed Line or Fixed Wireless connection, or via Satellite NBN.

The fixed line format is further divided into two main options: pure fibre fixed line, and mixed technology NBN which makes use of existing copper networks within many premises. It is available in four different speed tiers suitable for different NBN needs. Furthermore, there are bundles and bundle types and plans only applicable with NBN, such as the aforementioned business, broadband entertainment, gaming, and etc.

Speed and performance

Both properties here are obvious advantages, but remain the most prominent qualities that bring it to the fore of the Australian broadband public. This is the reason why newer markets such as business NBN and Netflix / Internet TV / Fetch TV are now possible, and widely available. It makes it possible for the advancement of many online activities and industries. Rural, regional, and remote areas with NBN have made it possible for opening new e-commerce markets, distant telecommunications, and distance education, as well.
