Upgrade to ultra fast speeds

Minister Fletcher said, "This next stage will see another 200,000 premises eligible, many of which are in the Monash electorate, which will drive significant benefits to the community."

"NBN Co will now work with its construction and delivery partners to get premises in the Monash region ready to upgrade to ultra fast speeds when they choose to do so. This represents a key part of NBN Co's $3.5 billion investment that will see 75 per cent of Australia's fixed line network able to access ultra fast broadband by 2023." Minister Fletcher said.

Access to benefit the region

Russell Broadbent, member for Monash said towns and communities across the region would benefit from being able to access ultra fast broadband. "This will create jobs in the community, ensure local businesses can access the speeds they need to thrive, and improve connectivity for families in the entire region."

"Households and businesses in towns such as Cape Paterson and Wonthaggi will be able to access NBN Co's fastest internet plans of up to 1 gigabit per second, on demand by 2023." Mr Broadbent said.
