Australia’s National Fiber Network Underway

Posted by Sam Churchill on

Australia’s National Broadband Network has published a detailed neighbourhood rollout maps for its nationwide fibre deployment.

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is a national wholesale-only, open access communications network for all of Australia. Over the next three years, construction of the fibre optic component of the network will be underway or completed in areas containing 3.5 million premises in 1500 communities in every state and territory in Australia.

NBN Co. estimates it will take nearly a decade to complete the entire construction project, which ultimately will bring fibre to 93% of premises. A further 4% will be reached by fixed-wireless and the remaining 3% will be connected via broadband satellite.
