homes and businesses
National Broadband Network rollout has hit another major milestone and is now
available to more than 3 million homes and business across Australia.
latest milestone shows that the Coalition’s multi-technology mix nbn rollout is
the fastest, most affordable way to ensure all Australians can access

productivity and provide a platform for innovation to ensure the economic and
social benefits of the internet are available to all Australians.

one in every four Australian homes and businesses are able to order an nbn
service, opening up a wealth of new opportunities for education, economic
growth and entertainment.
the Coalition came into government in 2013, just 300,000 premises across
Australia were able to purchase an nbn service. Since then, rollout progress
has dramatically increased – the nbn was made available to 1 million premises
by June 2015, then 2 million premises by April 2016. Now the nbn is available
to 3 million premises – and will continue to gather pace.
the Coalition, the nbn is ahead of schedule and on-budget, and is on track to
be available to 5.4 million premises by 30 June 2017 and over 9 million
premises by 30 June 2018.
just over a year from now, almost half of all homes and businesses in Australia
will be able to order an nbn service, and less than a year later that figure
will increase to three-quarters of Australian homes and businesses.
nbn is now connecting more active premises every month than the previous
government connected in four years.
are now over 1.2 million premises with an active nbn service – up from just
51,000 connected to the built network at the time of the 2013 election.
