New NBN rollout plan for 1.9 million more homes and businesses

NBN Co has announced a new national rollout plan, revealing the next phase of homes and business across the nation set to receive the National Broadband Network (NBN).

1.9 million homes and businesses across more than 400 cities, suburbs and towns, have been named in the new plan, which will be updated each successive quarter.

NBN Co says the new plan reflects the company’s “new, flexible multi-technology approach”.

“We’re committed to bringing fast broadband to all Australians as quickly as possible. The new multi-technology approach enables us to do just that,” NBN Co CEO Bill Morrow said.

“Over the past year, we have carried out successful trials of a range of new technologies, revised our build processes and are renegotiating our partner agreements. As a result of this work, we are able to provide forecasts that reflect the next phase of our network build.”

The new rollout plan includes a schedule of the construction work taking place in the rollout areas up to June 2016.

The expansion marks a major step in the plan to reach 8 million connections to the NBN by 2020.

“It is these forecasts that will enable our customers, the telephone and internet service providers, to be able to start planning the delivery of services over the NBN to these communities,” Mr Morrow said.

“Of course, the longer the forecast, the greater the likelihood that changes will occur. That’s only to be expected in a project of this magnitude.”
