The NBN rollout has recently picked up momentum around the country with an additional 44,709 homes and businesses in 26 regions connected to the network.

The latest construction maps show the National Broadband Network (NBN) will be rolled out using fibre and fixed wireless technologies across parts of the following regions and communities:

NSW:

  • Greater Sydney
  • Central Coast
  • Mid-North Coast
  • Northern Rivers
  • Central NSW
  • New England
  • Riverina

QLD

  • Sunshine Coast
  • Mackay Region
  • Darling Downs
  • North Queensland

VIC

  • Greater Melbourne
  • Bacchus Marsh
  • North-East VIC
  • South-West VIC
  • Western VIC
  • Wimmera
  • South-East Gippsland

WA

  • Greater Perth
  • Wheatbelt
  • Great-Southern Region
  • South-West WA

SA

  • Greater Adelaide
  • Riverland
  • Murraylands

This continues the momentum of the NBN rollout across the country, with over 199,067 home and business owners already connected to the network.

NBN Co spokesperson Lalla Mackenzie, said:

“Thousands more families and businesses are now a step closer to receiving fast, affordable and reliable broadband.

“The NBN can open up opportunities for families and business owners to better participate in the digital economy. Fast broadband can help deliver improved access to e-health resources, online education, teleworking opportunities and entertainment on demand.

“For many farms, homes and businesses in rural and regional areas, the rollout of the NBN will provide access to internet speeds and bandwidth that many in the big cities take for granted.”

This follows the news of an additional 167,000 homes and businesses which were added to the ‘build preparation’ phase of NBN Co’s rollout maps earlier this month. Build preparation takes place after the commencement of design phase (preparation of maps, surveying and rodding and roping) and ahead of the physical build (build commenced).

On average it takes around 12 months from the start of construction until residents and business owners can access services over the NBN from phone and internet providers.
