New research from Accenture, commissioned by NBN Co and released today, offers new insights into customer perceptions on affordability of the nbn™ network and a comparison to both other countries and other utilities in Australia.
New research from consultancy firm Accenture, commissioned by NBN Co, found that Australians continue to derive immense value from the Internet and that COVID-19 has amplified Australians’ reliance on services over the nbn™ network for essential tasks, entertainment, and connection.
NBN Co generated total revenue of $4.6 billion in FY21, an increase of 21 per cent year-on-year. Driving the solid revenue performance was the addition of 933,000 residential and business premises that connected to the nbn™ network in the last 12 months and a total of 8.2 million premises connected to the network at 30 June 2021.
NBN Co today announced the creation of 44 new nbn™ Business Fibre Zones to deliver premium business-grade fibre to an additional 60,000 eligible businesses premises across Australia, on demand, with no charge for the design and construction of fibre to the premises when they order a premium business nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet service.
NBN Co has awarded construction contracts with a total value of approximately $1.1 billion to extend fibre deeper into communities and advance the capability, reach and value of the nbn™ network for Australian homes and businesses.
