NBN Skymuster

The Sky Muster™ service is a key component of nbn's multi-technology mix (MTM) and will play an important part of helping nbn achieve its goal of connecting eight million homes and business by 2020.
The Sky Muster™ service will see the launch of two state-of-the-art satellites to provide remote and regional Australian with access to broadband speeds that most people in metropolitan areas take for granted. 
The first satellite, Sky Muster™, launched on October 1st 2015, with the service expected to be available in the first half of 2016 - the second satellite will launch in the second half of 2016.

The satellites will be supported by a network of 10 ground stations, each featuring two 13.5 metre satellite dishes. The ground stations have been built in specific locations across Australia to maximise both the availability and capacity of the system. The satellites are designed to enable nbn to deliver broadband services to more than 200,000 rural and remote homes and businesses with wholesale download speeds of up to 25Mbps.
