NBN edges closer to Swan res­i­dents

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Kensington -

ABOUT 6,000 house­holds and busi­nesses in Swan are closer to ac­cess­ing the Na­tional Broad­band Net­work, with con­struc­tion on the fi­bre-to-the-premises net­work and ad­di­tional build prepa­ra­tion work now un­der­way.

Swan MHR Steve Irons said Tel­stra had fi­nalised re­me­di­a­tion of in­fra­struc­ture in South Perth which meant that in com­ing weeks, NBN Co sub­con­trac­tors would be out in the streets and lay­ing out fi­bre.

“Work will also be vis­i­ble in Como as pre­con­struc­tion ac­tiv­ity be­gins, such as the clear- ing of Tel­stra’s pits and ducts for ap­prox­i­mately 2,700 premises,” he said.

“I am pleased to see that work on the NBN build and con­struc­tion phases are now sys­tem­at­i­cally pro­gress­ing through­out Swan, and I look for­ward to Como res­i­dents and busi­nesses gain­ing ac­cess to this fast and re­li­able broad­band ser­vice.”

De­tailed maps are avail­able at nbnco.com.au/maps which show con­struc­tion progress in­clud­ing green shaded ar­eas for the ‘build prepa­ra­tion’ phase.
