15 Feb 2012 - More Prospect Households to be Connected to the NBN
KATE ELLIS MP
FEDERAL MEMBER FOR ADELAIDE
15 February 2011
MORE PROSPECT HOUSEHOLDS TO BE CONNECTED TO THE NBN
Member for Adelaide, Kate Ellis, today welcomed NBN Co's announcement that the National Broadband Network (NBN) fibre rollout will commence for additional 5200 premises in Prospect over the next twelve months.
NBN Co, the company established to construct and operate the NBN, had updated its 12-month national rollout plan to reveal that over 15,800 premises in the Prospect area will be connected, up from 10,600 premises. Work will have commenced in the area by the end of 2012.
"Today's announcement is another boost from the Federal Government for households, businesses and schools in the Prospect area," Ms Ellis said.
"The feedback from local residents and business owners in Prospect to the NBN since the announcement in December of the first trial site has been overwhelming,"
"I look forward to working with more local residents and business owners about what the NBN will mean to them."
Prospect was first announced by the Federal Government as one of the first sites in Australia to be connected to the NBN in June 2010.
"I have been advocating for Adelaide residents to be able to access high speed and affordable broadband for many years and am thrilled that we are among the first in the country to be connected to the network," Ms Ellis said.
"Local schools such as Prescott College already have plans to transform the classroom through broadcasting lessons to other schools across Australia,"
"This is what the NBN is all about - improving the way in which we can all access information and communicate with each other."
Further information on the NBN rollout, including commencement date(s) for construction in Prospect is available on the NBN Co website at: http://www.nbnco.com.au/our-network/maps.html
