nbn has responded to recent media reports that suggest the NBN rollout is falling behind schedule.

Fairfax and Financial Review reports reference leaked internal nbn documents which show that expected connection dates were missed.

In response to the reports, nbn said there are thousands of construction sites running in parallel and that there is a big difference between site timelines and a company meeting its targets.

nbn said the documents help to monitor and manage risk to enable it to meet targets.

nbn CEO, Bill Morrow, said the nbn is on track and work has progressed concurrently to ensure delays are recovered to meet the full year company target.

“FTTN continues to be the fastest technology to deploy at scale, taking neighbourhoods with little or no broadband to speeds of 50-100 Mbps. Our priority remains to make fast broadband available to all Australians by 2020, in the most cost-effective way for taxpayers. The rollout of FTTN is key to achieving this goal,” says nbn.
