NBN contracts finalised in NT and SA

The final piece of the NBN puzzle is now in place, with the National Broadband Network Company signing construction contracts for the Northern Territory and South Australia.

The National Broadband Network Company (NBN Co.) today announced it has finalised construction programs for the Northern Territory and South Australia; the final state and territory without existing contracts. Syntheo, a joint venture between Lend Lease Group and telecommunications and utilities builder and manager Service Stream, won the contracts worth a potential $341m.

"This contract completes the picture for the NBN as we are now in a position to start rolling out the National Broadband Network in every state and territory across Australia," NBN Co head of construction, Dan Flemming, said on the NBN Co website.

According to the official schedule, it will be 2021 before 93% of Australian homes are connected to fibre Internet via the NBN. However, the contracts cover 85,000 premises in the state and territory that will receive the NBN over the next 12 months. 

Below is the list of which towns and cities in SA & the NT that will be connected in the next year.

 

 




 



The total value of NBN construction contracts to date is $1.96 billion over four years.
