NBN Co, the company behind the $36 billion Australia-wide high-speed internet network has signed up 12 retail service providers to take part in customer trials. NBN Co's head of product development and sales, Jim Hassell, said in a statement:
This testing phase is a critical step in building the network, working with RSPs and integrating our operating systems as we aim to provide the best possible service when commercial services commence.
Companies that signed up included Telstra, Optus, iiNet and Internode. I'm with iiNet at home so if iiNet want to hook me up with some uber-fast NBN goodness, my email is available on the TweakTown site ;)
