The company said in a statement that this meant consumers would receive larger peak and off-peak plans from their retail service providers at a similar cost to what they pay now.
The new plans are expected to be available by October.
NBN Co chief executive Bill Morrow said: “We are committed to helping to bridge the digital divide by delivering a world-class broadband service to regional and rural Australians.
“Late last year we made the decision to re-purpose our second satellite, previously slated as a dormant backup service to actively share the load in delivering more data to customers on the Sky Muster service.
"After spending the last year reviewing and testing the capabilities of the service, we are now comfortable that we have the capacity to offer increased data packages to retailers.
“We have listened to feedback from rural industry groups and the community and are confident that this announcement is a step in the right direction to improve their internet experience.
"We will continue to optimise the pricing model and data plans of the Sky Muster service with further offerings on business and education services expected to be available in the next 12-18 months."
