Around 20,000 homes and businesses will soon be the first in Sydney to complete the transition to the National Broadband Network (NBN).*
As part of a national upgrade to Australia’s fixed-line infrastructure, services over the NBN are scheduled to progressively replace most existing landline phone and internet services in parts of Penrith, Blacktown, Homebush, Riverstone, Richmond and Lidcombe starting from early next year.
NBN Co today urged the remaining homes and businesses in these regions that have not placed an order for services over the NBN to contact their preferred internet service provider or phone company as soon as possible.
*The NBN is replacing most of the traditional landline networks for phone and internet services, including copper and the majority of HFC networks, within its fixed line footprint with a mix of technologies. Services provided over existing fibre networks (including in-building, health and education networks) and some special and business services may not be affected. To find out if your services will be affected, please contact your current phone or internet provider. For more information, visit www.nbnco.com.au/switchoff or call 1800 687 626.
