NBN Co outlines next year of target sites

Aussie fibre wannabees bless, curse rollout list

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

NBN Co, the company building Australia’s National Broadband Network, has announced the next years’ worth of rollout plans. With 28 new locations added to the company’s announced rollout plans, the organization has more than doubled its published footprint plans.

Its list of upcoming sites is certain to come under criticism, from pretty much anybody who find their city or suburb isn’t on the list.

According to NBN Co, it now passes more than 18,000 premises with fibre that’s ready to connect, with coverage for more than 63,000 further premises listed as “under construction”.

Locations added to the NBN list include Blacktown, Dapto, Gosford, Lidcombe, Long Jetty, Penrith, Richmond, Sawtell, Strathfield and Wollongong in NSW; Darwin in the Northern Territory; Nudgee in Queensland; Aldinga Beach, Port Augusta, Port Elliot, Stirling, Srathalbyn and Yankalilla in South Australia; Launceston and Somerset in Tasmania; Central Ballarat, Melbourne City, Melton and Tullamarine in Victoria; Applecross, Meadow Springs, Pinjarra and South Perth in Western Australia.

According to NBN Co’s current estimates, the rollout plans now announced cover more than 485,000 premises. Links to NBN Co's tables are here and maps here. ®
