What is nbn® 500?
nbn® 500 is a 500 Mbps internet plan that offers business-ready connectivity. The maximum download speed on these plans is a zippy 500 megabits per second (Mbps).
Along with a maximum download speed of 500 Mbps, you’ll also enjoy a maximum upload speed of 200 Mbps – meaning your internet can handle all your business’s uploading and downloading demands.
If your business requires heavy cloud usage, VoIP phones, HD video streaming, large downloads or any other broadband, nbn® 500 might be just what you need to work better and faster.
Can I get nbn® 500?
The downside of a 500mbps internet plan is that it’s currently only available over certain nbn® connection types. This means that not all business premises in Australia are eligible for nbn® 500 yet – it depends on what technology is used for your connection.
To get Lightspeed internet for your business, you’ll need to have an FTTP (fibre to the premises) connection. To check your connection type, click here to find out if your address is eligible.
According to NBN Co, around 5.1 million premises in Australia had FTTP by mid-2022. If your address wasn’t one of those with the connection, you might be one of the million more due to be connected in 2023. Keep an eye on NBN Co for updates to your area.
