In the 1980s, Australia was among the first countries to have an Internet connection. However, even after three decades there are still some areas in the Land Down Under that can’t seem to find any Internet signals. Why is that?
First of all, this has something to do with Australia’s geographical location. If you take a look at the world map, you will see that the country is detached from the rest of the world. This means Internet signals would have to travel far greater distances just to reach Australia.
Another challenge Australia faces is, that a vast area of the country is a desert. Further, of its 2.97 million square-mile land area, it only has over 24 million population. In comparison, the Philippines, which only has 115, 831 square miles of land area has over 103 million population. This simply shows how sparsely populated Australia is.
So what’s the connection?
Because Australia is sparsely populated, network and Internet connection providers would have to invest a lot of funds to provide internet connectivity to every part of the country. There just aren’t enough people to make this a viable business decision.
Fortunately, the Australian Federal Government has come up with the NBN (National Broadband Network) program, which aims to bring high-speed and reliable Internet connections wherever you are in the Australia.
There are currently service providers that also offering NBN service and NBN deals. You can inquire with any of the NBN Internet providers within your area and they will be more than willing to assist you.
Here are some quick guidelines you should consider when looking for NBN broadband plans:
- Get the NBN that is right for you. There are various types of NBN connections. There is the NBN fixed line that uses fibre optics, and then there’s the NBN fixed wireless for remote locations.
- Find a reputable provider. There are a few trusted service providers in NSW where you can get the best NBN deals. However, make sure you don’t get the very first one you find.
- Know your needs. How fast do you want your Internet? What are you going to do with it? Is it for emails and voice correspondence? Is it for streaming and downloading? Your needs will tell you what type of package to get.
