Today, Australia's broadband access have poor ranking of 18th in the OECD, in order to save time, money and improve the internet technology for the society of Australia, so Australia government flower large amount of money constructs NBN. NBN means that national broadband network, it is the products of global network development which follow the theory of global network development .It satisfy the demand of society and people, and it also can satisfy the demand of economic growth. Therefore, NBN can help Australian family to save people limited time through long-distance network.
