The full fibre connection offers customers access to the higher speed tiers, promising faster uploads and downloads for homes and businesses, as well as faster game upgrades and streaming.

A Venture research commissioned by NBN revealed that online health consultations have increased by 147 per cent, online secondary educational engagement has grown by 114 per cent and a third of people who can work from home now expect to continue working from home at least one day a week.

The upgrades are part of the network’s fibre upgrade program, which was boosted by the Federal Government’s recent announcement of $2.4 billion investment.

NBN has selected the locations based on demand, workforce, and cost-effectiveness or the network’s ability to deploy at the location with speed and agility.

Kathrine Dyer, Chief Operating Officer at NBN said they have identified the suburbs and towns across Australia where customers living and working in around 3 million premises currently served by nbn Fibre to the Node will be able to access full fibre upgrades by the end of 2025. 

“We are unlocking social and economic benefits across Australia by pushing fibre deeper into communities. Fibre is inherently more capable of delivering faster upload and download speeds, is generally more reliable than copper connections and reduces our ongoing maintenance and operating costs,” Ms Dyer said.

“In just six years data use has tripled on the nbn network – and that exponential growth is expected to continue as customer demands increase to meet new technology.”
