High-speed internet is quickly spreading around Toowoomba, with the area seeing substantial progress being made on the construction of the National Broadband Network (NBN). The Garden City is yet another example of a major Australian location that will soon be experiencing the benefits of fast online capabilities.
The NBN provides users with quicker internet, making everything from taking care of business in the office to streaming videos on phones and tablets more efficient. Shorter lag times equal more productivity and enjoyment. Check out our FAQ page for more information on the NBN and what it can offer you.
Several regions of Toowoomba already have the lightning quick speeds of the NBN available. The northeast section of the city up to Jubilee Park is in good shape, with the NBN on offer in areas such as Harlaxton, Mount Lofty, Redwood and much of Prince Henry Heights. Users in Centenary Heights can also tap into the NBN when they’re ready.
From there the rollout spreads to the south and east. While not yet completed, building sites are up and running in East Toowoomba, Rangeville, Kearneys Spring and Middle Ridge. That coverage will satisfy users all the way to Glen Loman Park.
Western Toowoomba is nearly saturated with NBN coverage from top to bottom. Areas to the west of Cotswold Hills, Torrington and Westbrook are already hooked up. The coverage continues west from there, hitting outposts such as Charlton, Wellcamp and Umbiram.
At the moment, the central area of Toowoomba does not yet have full NBN coverage, with small pockets around the northwest portion of Wilsonton Heights acting as islands of connectivity. But work is underway for a build site in Glenvale that will spread the speed to even more residents. With more sites popping up every day, it won’t be long before the NBN reaches your home or workplace.
