Construction works to install the NBN in Sydney’s North Shore have begun and will connect more than 17,000 premises to the network once completed.
nbn spokesperson, Marcela Balart, said, “The rollout of the nbn network is gaining momentum across the country with more than a quarter of the nation currently able to connect to the network.
“The start of construction on the North Shore signals the ramp up of nbn works in metro areas, providing more than 17,000 homes and businesses in parts of St Leonards, Crows Nest and Naremburn with access to internet speeds and bandwidth not seen before across Australia.”
Construction crews will be in parts of St Leonards, Crows Nest and Naremburn, checking pits and pipes, laying the fibre backbone to the network and installing node cabinets throughout the area.
Premises are expected to be able to make the switch from March through to November 2017.
Nationally, more than three million Australian homes and businesses are able to connect to the NBN with more than a million of those in New South Wales.
