NBN roll­out reaches 50% mark

BUT THE SIGNUP RATE IS STILL NOWHERE NEAR THAT HIGH.

APC Australia - - Technotes -

In early July, NBN Co stated that the Na­tional Broad­band Net­work roll­out had reached a new mile­stone, with “5.7 mil­lion Aus­tralian homes and busi­nesses now able to or­der a ser­vice from their re­tailer” — mean­ing that half of the coun­try now has the op­tion to con­nect. De­spite that broad avail­abil­ity, how­ever, less than half of these premises have ac­tu­ally adopted an NBN con­nec­tion — so while the ser­vice may be ap­proach­ing readi­ness for the av­er­age Aus­tralian, it seems the av­er­age Aus­tralian isn’t quite ready for the NBN.
