Australia's NBN Ends 2011 with 4,000 On-Net Customers

As of December 31, 2011, Australia’s National Broadband Network had more than 4000 homes and businesses were connected to its infrastructure. Construction is expected to ramp up in 2012.

"We will look back on 2011 as a pivotal year for the NBN which saw us move from planning and designing the network to ramping up the rollout of a key piece of telecommunications infrastructure that over the next decade will reach every Australian. Indeed, the biggest challenge we face is managing the expectations of communities who want the NBN – and want it now. The key question we hear is not ‘Why do we need the NBN?’ but ‘When am I going to get it?’ A crucial task for 2012 will be to educate and inform Australians about the principles that dictate the rollout," stated NBN Co’s Head of Product Development and Industry Relations, Jim Hassell.
