NBN begins construction in 10 new locations

Expands construction to about 100,000 more premises

The NBN Co. has begun construction and rollout of the National Broadband Network in 10 new locations where the fibre optic network is commencing for the first time.

The first-time locations are:

  • Maitland in NSW;
  • Frankston, Footscray and Keysborough in Victoria;
  • Ashmore on the Queensland Gold Coast;
  • Gawler in South Australia;
  • Northam in Western Australia;
  • Claremont and South Launceston in Tasmania; and
  • Civic in the ACT

The NBN has also expanded its existing construction efforts to about 98,800 additional homes and businesses.

Construction contractors have been given instructions to start work in these sites, which begins with several months of detailed surveys of the areas and examination of the existing telecommunications infrastructure. This work is followed by the actual fibre hauling, according to a statement from NBN.

As at the end of December, NBN Co had commenced or completed construction in areas covering 784,600 premises, which included the 98,800 premises just announced.
