NBN Co has announced improvements to the NBN Business Satellite Service, with these including the expansion of coverage to include the entire Australian mainland and large surrounding islands. In a press release regarding the development, Australia’s communications minister Paul Fletcher also claimed that businesses across the country would now have cheaper access to business-grade satellite services, with NBN Co set to lower wholesale prices. The minister was cited as saying: ‘In addition to the expanded coverage, NBN Co will reduce the wholesale price by approximately 40% for the Business Satellite Service Access Bandwidth Service Level 3 dedicated product … This will give businesses cheaper access to wholesale speeds of up to 50Mbps/13Mbps, and also provide the option of unlimited data to provide the core connectivity required for critical business applications.’
