NBN Co has announced a sixth tranche of suburbs and towns across Australia that will become eligible to upgrade to NBN’s Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), with residents in Inverell set to benefit from access to ultrafast broadband.

Deputy Prime Minister and Member for New England, Barnaby Joyce said Inverell will soon benefit from access to the NBN’s upgrades.

“This will create jobs in the community, ensure local businesses can access the speeds they need to thrive, and improve connectivity for families in the entire region.”

“This next stage will see another 200,000 premises eligible, 1,051 of which are in Inverell, which will drive significant benefits to the community.

“Households and businesses in Inverell will be able to access NBN Co’s fastest internet plans of up to 1 gigabit per second, on demand by 2023,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.

Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, said today’s announcement would bring the total to 1.6 million premises of the 2 million target.

“NBN Co will now work with its construction and delivery partners to get premises in Inverell, ready to upgrade to ultrafast speeds when they choose to do so.

“This represents a key part of NBN Co’s $3.5 billion investment that will see 75 per cent of Australia’s fixed line network able to access ultrafast broadband by 2023.”
