NUM­BER CRUNCH

The num­bers be­hind the big tech news

The lat­est re­port on the NBN’s roll­out sug­gests that 6% of the ser­vice’s Fi­bre to the Node (FttN) cus­tomers aren’t able to reach speeds of 25Mbps (even if they were to pay for a higher-tier ser­vice) while only 32% could pos­si­bly ben­e­fit from the high­est tier, which of­fers speeds of 75–100Mbps. The com­pany has sug­gested that a sig­nif­i­cant fac­tor in this is the “co­ex­is­tence” of ADSL con­nec­tions on the copper wiring that forms part of FttN ser­vices, and that th­ese ADSL ser­vices will likely re­main ac­tive un­til mid-2022.
