National Broadband Network officials remain confident that the change in services outlined in the latest three-year plan will provide adequate coverage.
The NBN’s second three-year plan was unveiled earlier in the month, with key Ballarat suburbs Sebastopol, Redan and Wendouree not set for construction until 2017 under afibre to the node service instead of fibre to the premises connection.
While the lengthy wait will no doubt frustrateresidents of the aforementioned suburbs, others are concerned about the expected speeds of FTTN.
However, NBN’s chief architectTony Cross said FTTN trails showed the service will be more than adequate.
“Our own FTTN end-user trials have been hugely encouraging in showing that FTTN can deliver great speeds to Australians, with most end-users on the trial getting wholesale speeds of 100Mbps (download) and 40Mbps (upload),” Mr Cross said.
The introduction of FTTN is also predicted to allow NBN reach its objective of completing the roll out by 2020, as opposed to an all-FTTP fixed line roll out that wouldn’t be completed until 2026 at the earliest.
