NGNCo Begins Rollout in Western Australia

NBN Co has begun installing fibre in Western Australia for its new access network.  The first installation in this part of the country is occurring in Geraldton, a port city about 400km north of Perth.

In addition to Geraldton, work is under planning or construction in the following suburbs: Beachlands, West End, Rangeway, Mount Tarcoola, Karloo, Deepdale, Utakarra, Wonthella, Beresford, Webberton, Strathalbyn, Bluff Point, Woorree and Spalding.

NBN Co is aiming for construction in these suburbs to be completed throughout 2013.

"Access to high speed broadband can help to breakdown the tyranny of distance for Australian's living and working in the largest state. It has the potential to re-energise rural and remote communities and regional cities by allowing people to access new business markets, education options, cultural opportunities and a world of new entertainment right from their lounge rooms or offices," stated NBN Co spokesperson Trent Williams.
