Up Up and Away

Monday 5th October / presented by Chris Wheeldon

Rural Australian’s, rejoice;

you're one step closer to enjoying high speed Internet.

Last week, the National Broadband Network’s Sky Muster satellite launched from South America.

The initiative aims to secure high-speed internet to 400,000 homes in and around Australia including the Christmas, Norfolk, and Cocos islands.

Once tests are completed, the plan would be to begin providing service to Australian’s midway through 2016.

It’s one of two satellites that will see eight million homes connected to the NBN by 2020.

Some, however, remain sceptical about the satellite’s coverage, questioning how the initiative would maintain the expanse of land.

RMIT University’s Dr. Mark Gregory joined us on The Mag.
