plan, what difference could choosing a faster speed tier really make?

Probably a lot more than you might think.

All those tiny moments waiting for a file to download, or for a video to buffer, or for documents to sync across the cloud could quickly add up over the days, weeks and months into a lot more lost productivity or inefficiency than you might have thought.

Of course, there are a number of factors that can affect the speeds you might receive on the nbn, but any increase in internet speed can help to reclaim this lost time. How much could a typical business save by switching to the nbn network?
