HOMES in Mt Richon, Mt Nasura and parts of Seville Grove will be among the first in the City of Armadale to be connected to the National Broadbank Network (NBN) by early November.
Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said about 9200 homes were expected to be connected through the fibre to the node network.
“Following years of strong advocacy from the City of Armadale, the NBN will officially switch on in November, heralding new opportunities for homes and businesses,” Cr Zelones said.
“Faster connections and downloads will go a long way to unlocking the full potential of our limited internet services.”
He said the demands on existing internet capacity by the fast-growing City had frustrated residents and businesses.
“So it will be great to see the new network helping improve business productivity and allowing faster access to online educational tools for our children,” he said.
The NBN will continue its staged roll out within the City, with construction of network infrastructure already well under way and tipped for completion in the first half of 2017.
NBN will be mailing residents and businesses to advise when and how to switch to the network.
Residents can find out more about the NBN by checking their address at nbn.com.au or by calling 1800 687 626.
Roleystone residents have had access to NBN’s Sky Muster satellite since April.
