AU National Broadband Network Signs $11 Billion Deal With Telstra

An anonymous reader writes “The Australian government has signed an $11 billion deal with the country’s largest telco, Telstra, to acquire the telco’s physical infrastructure and migrate customers to the National Broadband Network. The NBN is a 100Mpbs open access fiber network that will be rolled out to 94% of the Australian population, with wireless and satellite to cover the remainder. The deal marks a large step forward for the new network, as without a deal to bring Telstra’s customers onboard, the NBN’s viability was in question.”
