Sydney Switches on its First NBN Connections


Residents of the suburb of Blacktown will be the first in the Sydney metropolitan area to switch on to Australia's National Broadband Network.

NBN Co's fiber network has just passed the first 1,300 homes and businesses in Blacktown.  A further 9,300 premises will be passed shortly.


Construction of the NBN set to have commenced or be complete for around 1.4 million premises across NSW and 4.85 million nationally by mid-2016. The nationwide rollout is due to be completed by 2021.

NBN Co CEO Mike Quigley said: “We’re getting on with the job of rolling out the NBN in every state and territory. Our plan is to deliver better broadband to every Australian over the remaining 8 years of this 10-year build.”

NBN Co also sad that in areas where its fibre network has been up and running for  more than 12 months, around a third of eligible families have already purchased an NBN package.
