NBN Rollout in Canberra – August Coverage Update

Sign up to NBN today

The National Broadband Network (NBN) rollout across Canberra is well underway, which means faster, more reliable internet to the increasing number of homes that are connected.

Areas currently covered by the NBN in Canberra

The rollout of the NBN to Canberra so far has seen widespread coverage across the Canberra CBD as well as a number of outer suburbs particularly those to the north. The outer suburbs connected to the NBN include Ngunnawal, Gungahlin, Mitchell, Franklin, Palmerston, Amaroo, Bonner, Forde and Harrison.

Areas where the NBN is coming soon

The rollout of the NBN has also started across large parts of Queanbeyan, Queanbeyan East and Crestwood. In these areas, either building or building preparation is underway. From the time that NBN construction begins in an area, it generally takes around 12 months to be completed and ready for your home to access the network. If you’re in one of these locations, sit tight, the NBN is coming soon!

What about areas where the rollout hasn’t started yet?

While there are many areas with extensive NBN coverage already, as you can see from the NBN map {INFOGRAPHIC], Canberra does have a lot of areas where the NBN rollout hasn’t started yet. Under the NBN Co plan for rolling out the network, new suburbs are being added all the time, and as this happens, the information will be added to the rollout map.

But the best way to keep updated (besides reading the iiNet Blog!) is to sign up to the NBN Interest Register.

    Great to see the rollout continuing. I found this NBN map better because you can see areas that were removed and thus likely to be re-added during the design phase.
