NBN Co Truck rolls into CeBIT
Posted on Wednesday 23 May 2012 by Dan Warne
If you're in Sydney, don't miss your opportunity to see the NBN Co truck (and get free entry to CeBIT!)
The Truck had more than 2,000 people through in the first day of CeBIT, with visitors keen to get their hands on the NBN equipment and hear first-hand from the National Broadband Network team.
Inside the doors of the truck, you'll have the chance to see NBN equipment up close, see simulations of the speed of broadband over fibre, and ask your curliest questions.
The equipment wall is always one of the most popular parts of the tour, showing the in-premises equipment used for fibre, fixed wireless and satellite installations.
Senator Stephen Conroy made a surprise visit to the truck and chatted with visitors about the National Broadband Network.
We also had some international VIP guests coming through, including Chief Information Officer of the Government of Canada, Corinne Charette (not pictured), and Minister of State for Communications & Information Technology Government of India, Shri Sachin Pilot (pictured above, centre).
Both the Indian and Canadian Ministers expressed strong interest in the project, asking many questions.
The positive response from our many visitors has been overwhelming with the most common question being "when am I getting it!?"
We have interactive rollout maps on the truck and experts on hand who are across all the rollout plans.
CeBIT closes tomorrow - click here to register for free entry.
When we talk about speeds delivered over the National Broadband Network, we are referring to the wholesale speed to telephone and internet service providers. The speed you can achieve, and services you can use, on your individual connection will depend on many factors including the services you subscribe to, the software and communication protocols you use, quality of your equipment and connection to your home/business, the broadband plans offered by your telephone or internet provider and how it designs its network to cater for multiple users.
