NBN Revs Up SMB Services
NBN Co unveiled a new series of enhancements to the broadband network, designed for SMB’s.
Announced yesterday, NBN Co’s Medium Business Services supports high download/upload speeds for business-grade applications such as multiline HD video conferencing and online backup.
Commander and Macquarie Telecom have confirmed they will be among the first looking to offer the NBN’s business-specific services.
Designed to meet the needs of medium-sized businesses, the new services will make cloud networks, VPN’s and other business apps work more effectively, and faster.
