Comments

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.
