nbn has met its financial year rollout targets for the second time since the company was established.
The company beat its target for the number of brownfields premises serviceable by almost 10 per cent and its brownfield rollout targets by almost 14 per cent. It also met its overall targets for activations across all technologies.
The company has cut down the number of premises that have no way of connecting the network – from roughly one in three brownfields premises supposedly ‘passed’ to less than one in 10 – and has reduced how long it takes to fulfil an order.
Last financial year, it was taking on average 27 days to fulfil an order in brownfields fixed line areas; as of April, that was down to 15 days.
On the activations front, the company activated on average almost 6,400 premises/week in brownfield areas in the last four weeks of the financial year. That compares to 2,800 premises/week in the corresponding period in 2014 and 1,200 in the corresponding period in 2013.
