One of the most common questions about the NBN is “when am I going to get it?”. Well the NBN has just revealed its rollout plans and the time frames for your area projecting as far forward as September 2018.
And for the first time these plans include areas where the NBN will use HFC (hybrid fibre coaxial) cables that already exist across metropolitan areas in capital cities.
With the growing number of FTTN (fibre to the node) connections and recent launch of a long-term satellite, the NBN is well on its way of achieving its target of connecting more than eight million homes across the country by 2020.
“Today we have provided forecasts for the next three years of the build, including areas covered by HFC cable TV networks,” said NBN CEO Bill Morrow.
“This is exciting news for the suburbs and towns added to construction. Access to fast broadband can provide a range of benefits for homes and businesses such as improved opportunities to work from home, better access to online education tools and more options for on-demand entertainment.”
There are already 700,000 premises under construction and about 1.3 million already connected to the NBN which will bring the total premises by the end of 2020 to more than 9.5 million.
