Smarter calculates the real time and cost benefits of switching to a faster internet connection on the nbn™ network.

Is faster internet a priority for your business or simply an extravagance? After all, you may be thinking, your current speeds allow you to do whatever your business needs to do. So, when selecting your nbn
plan, what difference could choosing a faster speed tier really make?

Probably a lot more than you might think.

All those tiny moments waiting for a file to download, or for a video to buffer, or for documents to sync across the cloud could quickly add up over the days, weeks and months into a lot more lost productivity or inefficiency than you might have thought.

Of course, there are a number of factors that can affect the speeds you might receive on the nbn, but any increase in internet speed can help to reclaim this lost time. How much could a typical business save by switching to the nbn network?

Telstra services on the nbn™ network are not available to all areas or customers. In areas services by nbn co Telstra may be required to connect services onto the nbn™ network.
