Help us track the NBN

Documenting Australia's broadband network rollout

Australians can now track the progress of the Federal Government’s $43 billion National Broadband Network (NBN), as the fibre-to-the-premises (fttp) network is rolled out to homes and workplaces across the country.

The NBN Project will document Australia’s largest infrastructure deployment and, as a Computerworld reader, you can help contribute to the information as the network goes ahead.

Simply visit The NBN Project on the Computerworld website and zoom in on the map to see where the rollout is up to in your area. Towns and suburbs that have been suggested to connect next are marked in grey. Orange markers indicate that the tender process is already underway or planned, yellow shows where the network is under construction and the green markers indicate existing optic fibre infrastructure that is awaiting connection.

Computerworld readers can also contribute information and photos on the project by emailing editor@computerworld.com.au

Nearly 5000 homes and businesses in Tasmania will be the first to be able to access the network – which can provide speeds of up to 100 megabits per second. The first stage of the rollout is expect to deliver wholesale-only, open access broadband before the second half of 2010. The communities of Smithton, Scottsdale and Midway Point in Hobart’s outer suburbs will be the first to receive optical fibre connections.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
