So by now you’re probably aware of the nation-wide rollout of the superfast
national broadband network – the communications network set to revolutionise the way Australians access the internet. The technology aims to deliver fast and reliable internet to Aussie homes and businesses. The question that now remains on everyone’s lips is: When is it my turn to get connected and enjoy the benefits?
The good news is nbn™ revealed a new roll-out plan this month which would see 7.5 million homes and businesses connected to the nbn network by 2018. The 3-year plan allows people to check when they’re likely to receive nbn and which of the different connection types they can expect to receive.
The different connection types are part of the Liberal Government’s Multi-Technology Mix (MTM) plan. The different connection types outlined in the plan include: Fibre to the premises (FTTP), Fibre to the node (FTTN), Fixed Wireless or Satellite and Cable. If you want to learn more about MTM, check out our helpful video.
The nbn™ website features a handy layout of the plan which you can filter by state/territory to narrow down to your precise suburb. Each state and territory is set to see a surge in construction and connectivity under the latest roll-out plan.
The ultimate goal the Turnbull government has pledged is to have 9.5 million premises connected by the year 2020. With 1.3 million premises already enjoying superfast nbn speeds, they’re well on their way to achieving this goal.
Check out the plan to see when you can expect to be connected to the superfast speeds of the nbn.
