The wait is over for many City of Armadale residents as the National Broadband Network (nbn) is expected to go live in 9,200 homes in early November, 2016.
Although Roleystone has had access to nbn’s Sky Muster satellite, since April this year, households in Mt Richon, Nasura and parts of Seville Grove will be among the first in the City to enjoy ‘fibre to the node’(FTTN) being rolled out nationally.
City of Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones OAM JP said the nbn network in the City would be welcomed by many.
“Following years of strong advocacy from the City of Armadale, the nbn network will officially switch on in November, heralding new opportunities for homes and businesses,” he said.
“Faster connections and downloads will go a long way to unlocking the full potential of our limited internet services.
“The demands on existing internet capacity by our fast-growing city has left residents and businesses frustrated, so it will be great to see the new network helping improve business productivity and allowing faster access to online educational tools for our children.”
The nbn network will continue its staged roll out within the City, with construction of network infrastructure already well under way and tipped for completion in the first half of 2017.
Nbn will be mailing residents and businesses to advise when and how to switch to the network.
