NBN will be rolling out new measures to support increasing capacity and data demand for NBN satellite services in regional and remote Australia during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Customers on standard NBN Sky Muster services will have their data download limits increased significantly effective from 31 March.

While customers on NBN Sky Muster Plus services, will see an increased range of applications that will not count towards monthly data quotas.

NBN Rural and Regional Chief Development Officer, Gavin Williams, said “Over the coming days and weeks, they are expecting a higher number of people in regional and remote communities to work from home and more children to be home schooled.

“We want to reassure regional and remote communities they are a priority for NBN we will continue to closely monitor data usage and work with service providers and key stakeholders to implement any additional measure required including monitoring the peak times and to support you during these uncertain times. Said Williams.
