5 Ways the NBN could change your life (some are more important than others)
It’s easy to forget how slow the internet really was when it first graced out homes. But the world has changed quickly, and now we aren’t as forgiving when we have to wait longer than a few seconds for a page to load. When the nbn becomes available in your area and you make the switch, the world will become even larger, faster and more exciting than ever. Here’s 5 ways that the national broadband network could potentially change your life.
1. Entertainment and Media including TV streaming.
How many of us have had to deal with slow loading times on our devices at that time of day when EVERBODY seems to be watching Netflix? The high demand on your internet service that creates this problem will be a thing of the past when you make the switch to the nbn. This goes for just about any media streaming you can think of.
Hello (goodbye?) weekends!
2. Smartphone and upload speeds including videos.
It’s so frustrating when you want to watch a YouTube video on your phone, and it takes forever to load, or doesn’t load at all. You might even finding yourself turning off your WiFi settings and eating into your mobile data just to ease the pain. When your phone is connected to your nbn service, social media feeds, images, videos, search results, maps – everything you can think of will be faster. Yay!
3. Music streaming.
With so many options for streaming music on your phone and PC, it’s annoying when your internet speeds mean you can’t make the most of them. Now, music downloads and streaming will be a super-speedy breeze.
4. Remote learning.
Although remote and rural schools may come to mind at first, there’s also a significant amount of adult education now undertaken online. The nbn will mean that more people have faster and more reliable access to their online courses.
About one-third of Australians live in rural and remote areas, with less access to vital health services that many of us take for granted. If you are one of these people, the nbn in could change your life dramatically. The possibility of medical consultations via live video could make a major difference to the lives of millions of people.
There are countless other ways that the nbn could change your life, depending on where you live, what you do, and how you use the internet. All we know is that its speed and reliability will make a massive difference to many people across Australia.
