The legal profession has always been hesitant in accepting changes but that is a luxury that is no longer available during the coronavirus pandemic. Over the past few months, the internet has become an essential part of a legal practice. The use of technology has provided law firms with the necessary flexibility and adaptability to come out stronger in today’s uncertain world.
Meanwhile, millions of households in Australia can have their national broadband network connection upgraded to speeds of up to one gigabit-per-second through a plan that was announced by the federal government.
The government has not released any details but if you are one of the 3.5 million households with slower fibre-to-the-node or fibre-to-curb connection, you may be in line for an upgrade. The government has invested about $51 billion on NBN.co which the company will pay from its revenue.
However, since the fibre extension is a demand upgrade, those who will request for an upgrade must afford to pay for the faster internet connection. According to NBN people who want faster speeds do not have to agree to a contract on higher speed for a specific amount of time.
Majority of the upgrades will be limited to those on the fixed line footprint. This means that the household is not using a satellite or fixed wireless on their premises. However, they can also get an upgrade if the local council partners with NBN for an alternative connection.
Poor performing parts of the fixed line network will be upgraded by NBN to allow download speeds of at least 100 megabits-per-second. For higher speeds, households can upgrade to full fibre at their own expense. NBN will extend fibre lines from the nodes from the end of a street so as to cover the entire street and then it will extend the last fibre from the street to the home.
