Eligible residential homes and businesses in parts of Braidwood can now place an order to upgrade their NBN connection to Fibre to the Premises (FTTP).
These upgrades will be available on demand where a customer in an eligible premise seeks a higher speed service through their Retail Service Provider.
This will allow residents and businesses to take advantage of the faster speeds which are increasingly important in a digital society and economy.
To further expand the benefits of fibre connections, the Australian Government has also committed to enabling an additional 1.5 million premises to transition from Fibre to the Node (FTTN) to Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) by 2025 – a significant proportion of which will be in regional areas.
Under the Australian Government’s plan:
- Around 80 per cent of all regional and remote premises will have access to plans based on wholesale speeds of 100 Mbps or more by late 2025. This was estimated at 33 per cent in March 2022.
- 93 per cent of all Australian homes and businesses will have access to plans based on wholesale speeds of 100 Mbps or more.
- Close to 90 per cent of the NBN fixed-line footprint will have access to plans based on wholesale speeds of 500Mbps to close to gigabit speeds.
