Late in 2015 the Federal Government set nbn™ the task of developing a dedicated port for education for use with the new nbn™ Sky Muster™ Satellite.

nbn™ have been working with State and Territory education departments to develop a new service called an ‘Educational Port’ which can be delivered over a dedicated port at the remote user’s home via Sky Muster™. This port has been designed specifically for distance education however future uses could include health and emergency services.
