An estimated 5,000 local businesses in the Top End will have access to 10Mbps upload speeds and almost one gigabit per second download speeds at a cost of $500 a month, the National Broadband Network said.

NBN chief executive officer Stephen Rue said in a statement, the company would spent about $700 million to create 240 “business fibre zones” across 85 regional centres, covering 700,000 businesses across Australia.

The Northern Territory will get three zones in Darwin, Palmerston, and Casuarina.

The company said in a statement there would be upload speeds up to 10Mbps and download speeds of up to 925Mbps, at a cost of $500 a month, with a 24-hour Australian help desk.

NBN added that when it connects a business within a zone to fibre, it will not charge the business for the act, and if the business signs a three-year deal, NBN will not charge the internet service provider.

NBN remote and regional areas chief development officer Gavin Williams said it was the upload speed that makes all the difference here for business and the new service would cost $500 a month. .

“Looking at its horses for courses, what we’re doing here is offering choice for businesses in the Darwin area to really do our best to support Darwin, to be a globally competitive center, you know as you are on the doorstep to Asia there it’s important that the innovation that so many of you businesses have can be supported by these kinds of products,” he said.

Mr Williams said price for the Top End’s Business Enterprise Ethernet with almost one gigabit per second upload and download is at $500 a month.
