NBN Co Logo


nbn was established in 2009 to design, build and operate Australia’s new high-speed broadband network. Underpinned by a purpose to connect Australia and bridge the digital divide, nbn’s key objective is to ensure all Australians have access to fast broadband as soon as possible, at affordable prices, and at least cost.

To achieve this objective, nbn has been structured as a wholesale-only, open access broadband network available on equivalent terms to all access seekers. This is intended to level the playing field in Australian telecommunications, creating real and vibrant competition within the industry.
