Eligible residential homes and businesses in Wallan, Wandong and Heathcote Junction can now connect to faster internet speeds as the rollout of full fibre continues across the country.

Full fibre is the National Broadband Network’s, NBN, fastest and most reliable residential connection on the network, with wholesale download speeds of close to one gigabit per second.

NBN consumer experience expert Jane McNamara said with more connected devices than ever before, there was increasing demand for faster and reliable internet from homes and businesses.

“The demand for faster and more reliable internet is the highest we’ve ever seen as the way Australians use technology continues to evolve,” she said.

“This is being driven by trends such as hybrid work and study arrangements and an increase in online entertainment, such as streaming services and gaming, across multiple devices.”

The delivery of full fibre is part of a commitment to invest in Australia’s digital backbone, and enables up to 10 million premises across Australia to access NBN’s highest residential wholesale speed tiers by the end of 2025.

“The last couple of years have shown us just how critical the NBN network is. We want more people to reap the benefits of fast and reliable internet, now and into the future,” Ms McNamara said.

“Almost one-in-five premises on NBN’s fixed line network are connected to plans based on NBN wholesale speed tiers with peak wholesale download speeds of 100 megabits per second and above. We expect this demand to keep growing.”
