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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
