NBN rollout continues
THE National Broadband Network continues to roll out across the region with 3900 premises included in the recent ‘build preparation’ phase, including Manning, Salter Point, Waterford, Karawara, Kewdale, Welshpool and Carlisle.
A further 4700 construction sites have already been listed under the ‘build commenced’ phase in Como, Welshpool and St James.
The 4700 premises currently listed in the ‘build commenced’ phase means NBN Co has issued contract instructions to its construction partners so they can commence work in the area.
The 3900 premises in the ‘ build preparation’ phase means that the NBN contractors are undertaking pre-construction activities, including readying Telstra pits and pipes for NBN use.
The NBN rollout out is part of the Federal Government’s project to upgrade the existing line phone and internet network structure.
