NBN rollout commences in Blackwood and surrounding suburbs
Member for Davenport, Sam Duluk MP has welcomed the recent announcement that the NBN fast broadband network rollout has commenced in these suburbs in Davenport: Bedford Park, Belair, Bellevue Heights, Blackwood, Coromandel Valley, Craigburn Farm, Eden Hills, Glenalta, and Hawthorndene.
These areas will see some of the first deployments of the Multi-Technology Mix (MTM) model in South Australia, including Fibre to the Node (FTTN).
Residents can visit the NBN website at www.nbn.com.au to check the progress of the rollout for their home or business.
Contractors will be carrying out pre-construction activities – for example readying pits and pipes for use by NBN – ahead of the physical construction of the NBN network.
The pre-construction phase is the first step of the process, with construction currently on track to begin in the coming months.
“This is great news for residents and businesses, access to fast broadband will help open up new opportunities for business, education and entertainment in the Mitcham Hills” Mr Duluk said.
