There's no doubt the NBN network has some great benefits for business productivity.
But if you're planning to switch to it in the future, you need to be mindful of a few implications it can have on your print hardware if yours is managed by an external provider.

Investing in new IT hardware can be expensive depending on your business needs, so it's not uncommon to avoid outlaying more money than you have to, any sooner than you really have to.
But there does come a point when loss of productivity comes into the mix, perhaps costing you more than new hardware does.
With the recent launch of Windows 10, there's a new kid on the web-browser block - Microsoft Edge.
Replacing Internet Explorer, it looks to have a promising future for Windows 10 users. It's fast, intuitive and built to help you do what you do, simply with less distraction.
