Homes and businesses in Forde are a step closer to getting the National Broadband Network, with build to commence on the network by June 2016.
The NBN Co today released its national rollout plan to June 2016, which includes parts of the following suburbs in Forde where the fixed-line build will commence:
• Chambers Flat
• North Maclean
• Park Ridge South
Bert van Manen MP said it was an important milestone for the area, with greater certainty for homes as businesses as they prepare for superfast broadband services.
“The message for Forde residents is clear – superfast broadband is another step closer,” he said.
Since the election, the NBN has more than doubled the reach of its network. Nationwide, 1.2 million homes and businesses can now connect to the NBN or have work underway in their area.
Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the release of new sites for build to commence was delivering on the Government’s promise to get the rollout back on track.
“When we came into Government, one of our chief priorities was to get this rollout completed sooner, cheaper for taxpayers and more affordably for consumers,” Mr Turnbull said.
NBN Co provides monthly updates on its website showing areas that have reached build preparation, build commencement and that are ready for service.
