More Aussie homes to get faster internet

Close to a million Australian homes and businesses will be eligible for faster internet. See if your town or suburb is on the list.

    Close to a million homes and businesses across Australia will be eligible for new NBN fibre upgrades that are set to ramp up internet speeds.

    The NBN Co has announced roughly 900,000 homes and business premises will be able to upgrade internet packages for fibre-to-the-premise (FTTP) plans from fibre-to-the-node (FTTN).

    Upgrades will include suburbs and towns in Tasmania, the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory.

    Fibre extensions have also been expanded for suburbs and towns in all other states.

    The FTTN to FTTP upgrade is anticipated to provide wholesale internet funding of speeds up to one gigabyte per second by 2023.

    It is part of a $3.5bn investment into the NBN to ensure the network has the capacity to meet rising demand.

    NBN Co chief executive Stephen Rue said the company was on track to achieve its goal of enabling around eight million premises to gain access to ultra fast broadband.

    “We’re very pleased to announce the latest list of suburbs and towns across Australia – from Byron Bay on the eastern tip of NSW to Yokine in Western Australia – that will ultimately see around two million FTTN premises become eligible to join our ever expanding fibre-to-the-premises footprint on demand,” Mr Rue said.

    “We are now well under way with the next long-planned phase of the network’s evolution and development to provide more customers with access to NBN’s highest wholesale speed tiers currently available.”
