NBN live in four more areas

Homes and businesses in four more areas of the ACT, New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania are now able to connect to the NBN fibre network.

 

Service is now available in parts of Gungahlin (ACT), Coffs Harbour (NSW), Toowoomba (Qld) and Hobart (Tas).
 
These additional areas contain around 9,000 homes and businesses.
 
NBN Co chief communications officer Kieren Cooney reminded householders and business owners that "There is no charge for a standard installation."
 
Once the fibre network is active in the street, customers can sign up for services over the NBN with their choice of provider, who will arrange the installation of NBN Co equipment on the premises.

Among them, the areas getting fibre connections for the first time are Civic (ACT); Ashmore (Qld); Maitland (NSW); Gawler (SA); Claremont and South Launceston (Tas); Frankston, Footscray and Keysborough (Vic); and Northam (WA).
 
According to NBN Co, construction had commenced or was completed in areas covering 784,600 homes and businesses by the end of 2012.
 
The company expects the network to pass 2.5 million homes and businesses by the middle of 2015.
