Help us track the NBN

Documenting Australia's broadband network rollout

Australians can now track the progress of the Federal Government’s $43 billion National Broadband Network (NBN), as the fibre-to-the-premises (fttp) network is rolled out to homes and workplaces across the country.

The NBN Project will document Australia’s largest infrastructure deployment and, as a Computerworld reader, you can help contribute to the information as the network goes ahead.

Simply visit The NBN Project on the Computerworld website and zoom in on the map to see where the rollout is up to in your area. Towns and suburbs that have been suggested to connect next are marked in grey. Orange markers indicate that the tender process is already underway or planned, yellow shows where the network is under construction and the green markers indicate existing optic fibre infrastructure that is awaiting connection.

Computerworld readers can also contribute information and photos on the project by emailing editor@computerworld.com.au

Nearly 5000 homes and businesses in Tasmania will be the first to be able to access the network – which can provide speeds of up to 100 megabits per second. The first stage of the rollout is expect to deliver wholesale-only, open access broadband before the second half of 2010. The communities of Smithton, Scottsdale and Midway Point in Hobart’s outer suburbs will be the first to receive optical fibre connections.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/HP Spectre x360

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
