ZED Seselja has welcomed the announcement that tens of thousands of premises will be upgraded to superfast broadband in the coming 2015-2016 financial year.

“57,300 premises in the ACT are a step closer to getting access to the National Broadband Network, with build preparation work now underway. Suburbs in the inner north, the Woden Valley and Gungahlin are expected to have their services upgraded in the early part of the rollout with further scheduling to be available online in the coming months,” Zed said.

“Premises included in the build preparations sites released today are situated in the suburb of Nicholls. In coming weeks, work will be visible in streets as pre-construction activity begins, such as the clearing of Telstra’s pits and ducts.

“The NBN will update its online maps in coming months to inform residents when physical construction of the network has begun, and when the network will be ready for service.

Senator Seselja said it was an important milestone for the area, with greater certainty for homes and businesses.

“The message for ACT residents is clear – superfast broadband is on its way,” Senator Seselja said.
