More suburbs to get NBN upgrades

NBN customers in Horningsea Park, Hoxton Park, Prestons and West Hoxton will be able to sign up for faster internet speeds as part of an upgrade plan.

Customers on the slower FTTN (Fiber to the Node) network will be able to upgrade their plan to get a fiber connection all the way to the home that would enable download speeds up to 1 Gpbs by 2023.

Upgrades won’t be available immediately, NBN Co says it has started detailed design and some construction activity for the upgrade program and expects to start a small-scale launch program in some areas from November 2021.

Holsworthy, Liverpool & Wetherill Park are already part of the plan that was initially announced last year.
