23 Oct 2015

nbn (formerly NBN Co), the company overseeing Australia’s National Broadband Network (NBN) project, has successfully completed a trial of G.fast technology in partnership with French-US vendor Alcatel-Lucent. Confirming the development in a press release, Alca-Lu noted that the trial – which was conducted over the past month – demonstrated how G.fast could ‘complement nbn’s existing multi-technology deployment toolkit, offering a range of opportunities to evolve its capabilities’.

Tony Cross, Chief Architect of nbn, said: ‘[G.fast] has the potential to give us tremendous flexibility in delivering very fast speeds to end-users in a wide range of different environments.’
