NBN Co was launched in April 2009 as a government business enterprise (GBE), wholly owned by the Commonwealth of Australia. It is overseen by shareholder ministers' the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy and the Minister of Finance and Deregulation. NBN Co in 2015 was rebranded as NBN, and is here cited separately to the NBN (as the infrastructure).

The purpose of the company is to build a nationwide, wholesale-only, high-speed, open broadband network. Since its inception it has been selecting technology and designing the network and systems, as well as developing a wholesale product offering.

In its original plan under the previous government, the company would connect 93% of homes, schools and workplaces to an optical fibre network (fibre-to-the-home FttH), providing high-speed broadband services to Australians in urban and regional towns. The remaining 7% of premises would be connected to an LTE-based fixed wireless network, and for those outside these footprints to a satellite network.

With the arrival of a new government, the original plan was replaced by what they call an Optimised Multi-Technology Mix'.

Despite the downgrade the government promised that under the new plan at least 90% of Australians would get broadband speeds of about 50Mb/s by year-end 2019.

The new plan would cost $41 billion (which has since been increased to approx $50 billion). It is a move away from a pure FttH plan to a multi-technology approach deploying FttH, FttN, FttB/DP and HFC in addition to fixed wireless and satellite.

This report also provides financial and operational information regarding the NBN as well as the company's corporate plan, including forecasts. It also provides on overview of the various network developments and analyses as they occur over the roll our period.
