NBN Satellites nearly full

NBN Satellites nearly full: "NBN Co’s interim satellites are reaching full capacity and the government-owned company has started turning away new customers in rural Victoria. These customers must rely on existing broadband infrastructure until NBN Co launches two custom-made satellites in 2015.

Satellite beams covering NSW, Tasmania and Queensland were also close to capacity, while those covering central and western Australia had some space left.

NBN Co only has enough space for 48,000 customers nationally on its interim satellite and has already connected 42,044 premises, according to figures released this week.

However, the new satellites would have capacity for 200,000 customers, and download speeds of up to 25 megabits per second (Mbps) and upload speeds of 5 Mbps. "

  1. NBN satellites reaching its full capacity is problematic. The NBN should respond quickly by launching its 2 custom-made satellites earlier than 2015.
