Australia's broadband sector is making improved progress in its migration to a multi-technology NBN. This has left considerable room for further development in the DSL and cable sectors, both of which are benefiting from the deployment of new technologies. The DSL sector is showing resilience as operators make greater use of VDSL, while the company responsible for the national rollout, nbn (NBN Co) has trialled G.fast technology and expects to provide services based on this upgrade during 2017. HFC is also gaining a new lease of life, with nbn also preparing to trial DOCSIS3.1 technology with a view to commercialising services by mid-2017. The pace of work on the project has quickened since the second half of 2015, and by June 2016 there were some 1.749 million premises serviceable by the NBN, of which more than 886,000 were activated.

Consolidation within the broadband market, with some key acquisitions having taken place among ISPs, will provide greater reach and scale for operators in coming years.
This report provides an overview of the Australian DSL market, incorporating data from a range of sources including the Australian Communications and Media Authority's 2014/15 report, material from the Australian Bureau of Statistics to December 2015, operator data into 2016, as well as statistics from a range of government reports.
