Internet access continues to grow but some people are still not connected.
Australia's connection to the internet continues to grow but there are still 1.3 million households not online.
How fast is the NBN in its current form? Is it really that much faster than ADSL? And, crucially, how long will it take to download an episode of Parks and Recreation? You'll find the answers here.
