NBN Co trials enterprise gigabit service

NBN Co has begun a trial of a new wholesale product that will provide symmetrical speeds of up to 1Gbps.

The NBN Enterprise Ethernet service will initially be retailed by Telstra, Vocus and TPG. Given NBN Co's practices in other markets, it seems likely that the new service will be made available though a wider range of service providers once it comes out of the trial phase.

This direct fibre service — intended to provide large organisations with the ability to run data-intensive applications such as VPNs, multiple voice lines and cloud-based solutions — is expected to be commercially available in the third quarter of 2018.

"In the early stages of the trial, participating phone and internet providers will identify a number of business customers with varying construction and broadband requirements, where our focus will be on testing the infrastructure design and build," said NBN Co chief business customer officer John Simon.

"As we near closer to launch, we will begin to test the performance of the product as well as internal processes to ensure we are positioned to meet the growing needs of enterprises. The trial will give retailers the opportunity to provide feedback on the design and delivery of the product and ensure it is competitive and valuable option for their enterprise customers."
