Daglish, Jolimont to get broad­band soon

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

FAST broad­band is just around the cor­ner for parts of Daglish and Jolimont as con­struc­tion gets un­der­way to con­nect the area to the NBN net­work.

Work started this month on build­ing fixed line tech­nol­ogy for 29,000 premises in parts of Daglish and Jolimont, with re­main­ing ar­eas of Shen­ton Park, Crawley, Ned­lands, Dalkeith, West Leed­erville, Su­bi­aco, Wem­b­ley and West Perth con­tin­u­ing over com­ing months.

City of Su­bi­aco chief ex­ec­u­tive Don Bur­nett said the City was pleased to con­firm the roll­out of the Na­tional Broad­band Net­work in the Su­bi­aco area.

“The works, which make use of ex­ist­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions in­fra­struc­ture, will be rel­a­tively low-im­pact,” he said.

“The City will be work­ing closely with NBN Co and its con­trac­tors to en­sure our res­i­den­tial and busi­ness prop­er­ties are well placed to reap the ben­e­fits of the im­proved tech­nol­ogy.”

More than 10,600 premises in parts of Mt Clare­mont, Swan­bourne, Clare­mont, Cottes­loe, Pep­per­mint Grove and Mos­man Park were made ready for ser­vice last month and the re­main­ing parts of Cottes­loe, Swan­bourne and Mos­man Park – cov­er­ing 4000 premises – are ex­pected to switch on in June.

Con­struc­tion is ex­pected to start for a small re­main­ing sec­tion of Mt Clare­mont and Clare­mont later in the year.

NBN cor­po­rate af­fairs man­ager for WA Ebony Aitken said the west­ern sub­urbs would ben­e­fit from the switch.

“Once con­struc­tion works are com­plete, the com­mu­nity will join more than 4.8 mil­lion other premises across Aus­tralia that are cur­rently able to en­joy the ben­e­fits of the NBN net­work, with more than 490,000 of those in WA,” she said.
