In 2006, the National Broadband Network was pitched as a ‘super fast’ network that would provide 12Mbps to 94% of rural Australia and 99% of the Urban population.

Starlink finally delivers on the NBN promise and then some - I get speeds that fluctuate between 60Mbps and 190Mbs, sitting comfortably in that 80-90 territory most of the time.

Over the last few years, we’ve lived in a few remote and regional areas of Australia. We’ve had the complete NBN experience: fibre-to-the-home, fixed-wireless, and no service. If you have a clear view of the sky, Starlink outperforms the NBN in remote, rural, and most regional scenarios. It’ll provide an Internet connection on par with fibre-to-the-home, and it will even surpass those connections by a factor of two some of the time.

Starlink is the super fast network that probably already covers more than 94% of the rural Australian population. If the only thing stopping that tree-change is crappy internet, then Starlink might be your answer.
