Queensland NBN Coverage Map and Roll Out Plans
The NBN continues to roll out across the country and the nbn™ co has predicted that the entire nation will enjoy the benefits of high-speed broadband by the end of 2020. The roll out across Queensland mirrors what is happening across Australia and there are still large areas of Queensland yet to receive access to the NBN. The good news is that more and more areas in Queensland have had NBN installed or can look forward to enjoying the benefits of NBN in the next twelve months.
In July this year, the nbn™ co announced that it was adding the areas of Buderim on the Sunshine Coast and Springfield in greater Brisbane to the list of suburbs due for rollout. NBN spokesperson, Greg Adcock, is bullish about the pace of rollout across Australia.
“The expansion of the rollout reflects the company’s new multi-technology approach and is an important step toward reaching our goal of connecting eight million premises to the nbn™ network by 2020. Today, around one in ten homes and businesses can connect to the nbn™ network. Our recently renegotiated construction contracts give us the confidence to schedule more than double that amount to start construction over the next 18 months.”
This is great news for Queenslanders, as the pace of the rollout picks up and more and more suburbs and areas come on line, more people will experience the benefits of high speed broadband. NBN connectivity has been concentrated in built up areas like Brisbane, where much of the city either has been connected or is in the process of being built. Other cities to benefit from early connection include Townsville, Mackay and Cairns.
The NBN will deliver massive benefits to all Queensland homes and businesses and all Queenslanders can look forward to fast reliable broadband Internet, which will result in:
- Better access to markets for business – High-speed broadband allows smooth communications overseas and interstate and the transfer of large amounts of data in a seamless fashion.
- Greater communication options for businesses – Video conferencing, access to recorded video and the transfer of large documents and files in seconds are all possible.
- Better work life balance – High speed broadband opens up all sorts of working possibilities and makes working from home and remote areas a more distinct possibility
- Smooth video conferencing – No frozen screens or blurred distorted communications.
- Great benefits to health diagnosis and consultation – Telehealth is one of the great benefits to remote parts of Queensland.
- Better access to education resources and channels.
- Greater entertainment options in the home, including video streaming on demand. Companies like Netflix will become more accessible across Queensland as Internet speeds increase.
As the NBN reaches more and more Queensland homes and businesses, the benefits of this technology will help Queenslanders to access new and exciting technologies
