MyRepublic, the new entrant into Australia's NBN reseller market, has derided NBN CEO Bill Morrow's claim that there is no significant demand for superfast broadband speeds in Australia.
The NBN now reaches around a third of premises across Australia and total active connections reached 1.6m as of the end of 2016, nbn's latest half-year report shows.

The NBN rollout is expected to reach 50% completion by around June this year, and the focus of construction activities is expected to shift more towards metropolitan areas over the next 12 months.

Australia needs a more productive discussion to give us the type of NBN we deserve, says Internet Australia's Laurie Patton.

With the initial $29.5bn funding pool for the NBN project running dry, the government has had to provide nbn with a $19.5bn loan to complete the nationwide deployment.
Complaints to the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman fell 9.6% in FY16, even as NBN-related complaints nearly doubled as the rollout picked up steam.
