Another 1.9 million premises on NBN by June 2016

The plan is to connect them to the National Broadband Network in just over 18 months.

With 1.9 million premises to be connected to the NBN by June 2016, the list of suburbs and towns is lengthy.

Suffice it to say that 1,913,000 premises in 419 towns and suburbs are included, in areas ranging from Far North Queensland to Southern Tasmania, from Nhulunbuy (NT) to Mount Gambier (SA), and from Karratha to Augusta (WA).

Few of the newly-added sites are in inner or middle metropolitan areas. Exceptions include Homebush (Sydney) and Footscray (Melbourne).

The NBN interactive rollout map only shows areas where the rollout has got at least as far as the build preparation stage.

NBN Co says the rollout schedule "includes all technology in the Multi-Technology Mix (MTM) with the exception of HFC and the Long Term Satellite Service."

But it does reveal the technologies being used in particular areas: wireless (the arrival of MTM left the proposed wireless footprint unchanged), fibre to the premises (basically only in areas where it is already being built), and MTM.
