NBN enhances rollout map
The company building and operating Australia’s National Broadband Network is making available more information about the progress of the rollout.
The interactive rollout map on the NBN Co website now displays the communities in the fixed-line footprint where “Build Preparation” is taking place.
These areas are shaded green on the map. They signify that contractors in built-up (or brownfields) areas are carrying out pre-construction activities – for instance readying Telstra’s pits and pipes for use by NBN Co – ahead of the physical construction of the NBN.
NBN Co Chief Operating Officer, Greg Adcock, said:
“We are stabilising the NBN rollout and have reviewed the underlying data. That gives us the confidence to be able to provide greater clarity about work underway across Australia.
“The new measure lets families and businesses know earlier on in the rollout process that the NBN is coming so they can start exploring how they might take advantage of high-speed broadband.”
“Build Preparation” is currently underway for approximately 167,000 homes and businesses in the NBN brownfields footprint. Construction contracts for the physical build of the network (“Build Commenced”) have been issued for a further 290,000 brownfields premises.
There are 195,000 families and businesses with an active NBN connection across all access technologies.
“Build Preparation” takes place after the commencement of design phase (i.e. preparation of maps, surveying and rodding and roping) and before the start of the physical build (“Build Commenced”). The design phase is not displayed on the map.
