Federal Member for Throsby Stephen Jones today welcomed the release of detailed maps by NBN Co, showing where further construction of the National Broadband Network (NBN) will commence in the Dapto area.
This is really exciting for local families and businesses Mr Jones said. In around 12 months time, people in Dapto and surrounding suburbs will be able to start connecting to the National Broadband Network.
The map also shows that NBN fibre is being rolled out in Horsley for the first time, which will allow more residents access to faster, affordable and more reliable broadband.
Work is starting in the area and over the next few months and residents will start to see NBN Co workers in Horsley doing the detailed planning and inspection work, and then rolling out the fibre.
The National Broadband Network is about preparing Australia for the future. Its about ensuring that our local communities in places like the Illawarra are not left behind as the world and our local economy changes.
