Foxtel doubles nbn™ footprint
Foxtel Broadband brings nbn™ Fibre-to-the-Node and Fibre-to-the-Building access bolstering the performance of Foxtel broadband built for entertainment
Foxtel today announced that it has expanded availability of its nbn™ services for premises in Fibre to the Node (FTTN) and Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) serviceable areas across Australia. The move follows Foxtel’s recent arrival on the nbn™ for Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP) areas. Today’s news means more customers than ever can enjoy Foxtel’s high performance broadband, purpose built for entertainment.
Australia’s continued hunger for broadband data usage is being driven by widespread video streaming, a growing number of connected devices and more data-demanding applications. At the same time, customers expect an improved broadband experience so they can access their data and stream their content when and how they want.
Foxtel Broadband puts entertainment at its core and has been recognised by YouTube+ as offering a superior HD experience for video streaming. Foxtel’s nbn™ expansion reinforces Foxtel’s leadership in addressing the increased needs of today’s connected households.
Mark Buckman, Foxtel’s Managing Director, Customer and Retail, said, “The way people interact online and watch streamed entertainment is changing rapidly. Fast and reliable broadband is an essential ingredient for Australia’s connected homes. Foxtel Broadband’s arrival in FTTN and FTTB serviceable areas increases our reach to more Australians than ever before.
