Australia launched its second broadband satellite into orbit last month and many are expecting faster access to fast broadband services, especially for rural and remote areas.
According to Enterprise Innovation, the launch of the National Broadband Network’s Sky Muster™ II will benefit at least 400,000 Aussie homes and businesses as the rollout complete its course.
This service is already helping to improve healthcare outcomes by connecting remote patients to city specialists, delivering access to a new world of educational opportunities for kids in the bush and increasing productivity for local small businesses.
We are ensuring that no Australian is left behind by providing access to fast broadband for those who need it the most.”
