The rollout of the nbn™ network covers existing built-up areas (Brownfield) and new developments (Greenfields) using fixed-line, satellite and fixed wireless technologies.
The downloadable chart shows the progress of the rollout outlining the number of premises passed, the services activated and those passed but currently unable to connect (service class 0).
The data contained in this document reflects nbn's position for the week ending 18 August 2016.
Variations in numbers from week to week reflect the modular construction program. That is construction is completed in blocks, so that there may be large upward jumps in some weeks and less or none in others. Following completion of the construction process passing premises in the streets, further validation of address data is undertaken of the “as-built” network against estimates obtained from national address data. There may be some fluctuation in numbers from week to week as a result.
