NBN Co has revealed a list of 12 ISPs participating in the National Broadband Network (NBN) mainland trials.

Armidale in NSW, Kiama in NSW, Wilunga in SA, Townsville in QLD and Brunswick in Victoria were named as the first five NBN trial sites.

The 12 ISPs onboard are: AAPT, AARNet, Comscentre, Exetel, Internode, iPrimus, Nextgen Networks, Optus, Platform Networks, SkyMesh and Telstra.

However, only four of these participants are NBN ready. iiNet, Internode, iPrimus and Telstra will be running preliminary tests over the network and will begin connecting customers when trials begin.

The others will now begin the process of connecting to the NBN.

Armidale will be the first site to commence trial.

“The trial will extend to the other first release site in the months following to eventually cover several hundred end-users,” NBN Co head of product development and sales, Jim Hassell, said in a statement “This testing phase is a critical step in building the network, working with the [ISPs] and integrating our operating systems as we aim to provide the best possible service when commercial services commence.”

NBN Co expects to light up the NBN commercially by September.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
