NBN Co spokesperson Lalla Mackenzie, said thousands more families and businesses were 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," she said. "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.”

According to NBN Co, this rollout follows an additional 167,000 homes and businesses, which were added to the ‘build preparation’ phase of the 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).

Great to see them expanding, yet they are STILL missing the massive hole north of Perth where we struggle to get 200kb/s and a stable line! yet. But they are happy to do the up market suburbs of Applecross/Mount Pleasant which have more then adequate lines. Absolutely disgraceful.
