Expansion of broadband to benefit Gladesville

April 17, 2017 by  

Gladesville is one of the suburbs winning from the extension of Australia’s broadband network.

The company behind the rollout of the National Broad Network (NBN) recently made an announcement about the extent of its efforts. Tennyson Point, Gladesville and Botany are among the Sydney suburbs that should enjoy great connectivity soon, perhaps boosting demand for digital printing in the area.

Peter Ryan, the top engineering officer at NBN, said:

“As things stand, we're deploying FttC to 700,000 premises across the country, with around 400,000 of these being in the former Optus HFC footprint. With work well under way on bringing these premises into the network fold … we've decided to extend our FttC footprint to 1 million premises.”

NBN has signed fresh contracts for fibre construction with a range of firms. Further, it has been revealed that NBN and Nokia have been working closely together. Their cooperation is intended to make improvements in performance and affordability for consumers, especially since Nokia has a Melbourne laboratory.

The push will not just benefit businesses located in the suburbs of Sydney; it has recently been announced that trials will soon begin to help firms situated in the suburbia of Melbourne.

Nevertheless, timing is critical when it comes to taking advantage of the opportunities presented by new technology, hence suburbs like Gladesville, Alexandria and Peakhurst may receive a welcome boost by having their needs addressed prior to their Melbourne counterparts.
