Media Release Senator the Hon Stephen Conroy Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy Deputy Leader of the Government in the Senate Minister Assisting the Prime Minister on Digital Productivity

NBN fibre rollout goes into high gear in New South Wales The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, today announced 1,010,700 New South Wales homes and businesses will have access to National Broadband Network (NBN) fibre services under NBN Co’s first three year fibre rollout plan.

NSW Highlights

1,010,700 homes and businesses in the three year NBN rollout • Construction to begin between 1 April 2012

and 30 June 2015


NBN fibre already under construction to 67,900 NSW premises •

The indicative three year rollout plan lists the New South Wales locations where construction of the national fibre network will begin between 1 April 2012 and 30 June 2015.

Under the three year rollout plan, construction of the New South Wales fibre network will begin in 382 NBN Fibre Serving Areas Modules (FSAM)—each containing about 3000 homes and businesses.

“That means the NBN rollout is about to go into high gear,” Senator Conroy said.

“In the next three years, 1,010,700 homes and businesses in New South Wales will be on the way to having, or will already have, access to NBN fibre services.”

The fibre rollout is currently under construction to 67,900 premises in New South Wales. There are 7,400 homes and businesses that already have access to NBN fibre services.

The NBN will deliver high-speed fibre broadband access to 93 per cent of homes and businesses, capable of speeds of up to one gigabit per second. Seven per cent will have access to high-speed fixed wireless or next-generation satellite technologies providing peak speeds of 12 megabits per second.

The NBN is critical infrastructure that will secure the economic future of those living in New South Wales and across Australia, and will support Australia becoming a leading digital economy by 2020, with improved online access to health and aged care, education, and access to government services.

“The NBN will also support a new wave of digital innovation that will change the way Australians live, do business, receive services and connect with the world,” Senator Conroy said.

“The NBN will enhance the lives of every Australian, grow productivity, and maintain our global competitiveness. It will provide regional Australia in particular with unprecedented opportunities for businesses to connect to distant markets both here and overseas.

“As I’ve said before, it is important to understand the NBN is more than just faster downloads. The NBN is the platform on which businesses will develop better and more efficient ways of running their enterprises and improving productivity.”
