What the NBN looks like
The National Broadband Network is being constructed using both underground and overhead options. It will depend on where you live as to whether you will have an underground or overhead network connected in your street. Initially, it will take between 2-4 days for field survey and planning for the network. This is where the field design team will gather the information needed to construct the network specifically for your street.
Building the underground option for the NBN will take around 10 days per street. The overhead option will not take as long to construct (3 days) as it will utilise existing power poles - as illustrated in the graphic below.
