MORE than 150 suburbs across Perth have been earmarked for the start of NBN construction in 2017.

As the NBN rollout gathers momentum around the country, many Perth suburbs will see construction begin in either the first or the second half of next year.

The news comes as work commences in North Perth to construct the NBN.

The rollout in the area will cover around 23,600 premises in parts of East Perth, Highgate, Mt Lawley, North Perth, Northbridge, Perth and West Perth.

NBN chief executive Bill Morrow said more than 300,000 premises in WA were now able to connect to the network, with 104,000 activated so far.

He said the company expected a 73 per cent take-up rate once the network had been rolled out across the country.

“No matter where you are, by 2020 you will be connected and you will have choices in terms of the speeds that you want,” he said.

Until now, 70 per cent of the rollout has targeted regional areas because of a Federal Government mandate directing NBN to roll out to those areas most in need.

Mr Morrow said NBN would be rolled out to half of the nation by the end of this financial year.

“No country has taken this on like Australia has,” he said.

“To do this in this time frame, to get things done by 2020, to do it with a multitude of technologies and – most distinctly – to do it to every home is like no other place in the world.”

Three quarters of the national rollout is expected to be complete by 2018.

In Beaconsfield, Coolbellup, Fremantle, Hamilton Hill, Hilton, Kardinya, North Coogee, North Fremantle, North Lake, O’Connor, Samson, South Fremantle, White Gum Valley and Willagee the network is already under construction and will continue into 2017.

Barragup, Coodanup, Dudley Park, Erskine, Furnissdale, Greenfields, Halls Head, Harrisdale, Mandurah, Piara Waters and Silver Sands have been switched on.
