The nbn’s Sky Muster (NBN-1A) satellite is almost ready for launching into orbit from French Guiana. The launch will mark the end of five years of planning, and benefit rural Australians using the NBN service.
The Sky Muster is about to come out of storage at its manufacturer SS Loral in California, having already passed its testing procedures, and preparations to ship it to French Guiana will soon begin.
nbn are also making good progress with the construction of their second satellite, NBN-1B, which is getting ready to enter the antenna pattern measurement phase at SS Loral.
According to nbn, there has been a huge amount of work done by everyone working on the nbn Satellite program and the company is proud and excited about bringing access to world-class broadband to hundreds of thousands of rural Australians.
