You want fast, reliable internet service. You’ve heard the National Broadband Network (NBN) can make that happen. But just how fast is “fast”? And which plan is best for you?
NBN with Business Backup
Our business grade NBN is fast, reliable and uncontended, meaning it runs at full speed even at peak times. Plus, it comes with a static IP address to ensure secure accounting and banking.
NBN Speeds Explained
The connection speed you will be able to access on the NBN network is determined by four main factors:
- The type of NBN technology connected to your property
- The broadband plan you sign up to, which may include a cap on speeds
- The network capability of your service provider
- The setup at your property and how you use the internet
At Buroserv, we offer four-speed tiers. Your internet usage, as well as the maximum line speed of your NBN technology, will determine which speed tier is right for you:

What are the different NBN connections?
Several different connection types can be used to connect your property to the NBN network:
- Fibre to the premises (FTTP): A pure fibre connection running all the way from the exchange to your property, offering very fast internet speeds. FTTP allows you to retain your current analogue phone service and connect up to four different data services.
- Fibre to the node (FTTN): Fibre cables run from the local exchange to a street cabinet or pole, after which information is carried over traditional copper cabling. The shorter the distance between node and property, the faster the internet connection.
- Hybrid fibre cable: An NBN hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) connection is used where the existing pay TV or cable network forms the final part of the NBN network connection. In this scenario, an HFC line will be run from the nearest available fibre node to the premises, similar to FTTP.
- Fixed wireless: NBN installs radio base stations, just like the ones used for mobile phones, and then hooks up an antenna and a fixed modem in the property.
The types of IP Addresses
- Static (provided by Buroserv) this means that you get a fixed (unchanging) IP address for your NBN connection. This is a useful security feature for businesses and can provide added protection from hackers who want to access your phones, accounting and banking applications.
- Dynamic – your IP address periodically changes. This means that it cannot be used as a means of security authentication. It also makes it harder to host applications such as websites and email. It can also cause routing problems making it harder for customers to reach you.
Our business backup
While NBN connections are reliable, it doesn’t mean they will never fail. And when your NBN goes down it can have a major impact on your business. Many service providers offer a 4G backup option so you can continue to access the Internet when your NBN service is interrupted.
However, not all backup offerings are the same. Most providers only offer options with a low-speed connection when the NBN is down, typically 8-10Mbps. This can significantly impact the performance of business applications.
We at Buroserv offer unlimited speed backups of the 4G connection (this varies based on mobile coverage). The best coverage is from Telstra, our Buroserv supplier.
Actual internet speeds may vary due to many factors, including:
- Type/source of content being downloaded
- Hardware/software configuration
- Type of NBN technology
- The number of simultaneous users on the network
- The performance of interconnecting infrastructure not operated by Buroserv
Devices connected by Wi-Fi may experience slower speeds than those connected by a cable. Important information on speeds, and lots of other key documents, can be found here.
All Buroserv offers are available only to approved customers and are provided under our Standard Form of Agreement.
Finally, please be aware that an early termination charge applies outside of any applicable cooling-off period.
