NBN Co beats 2012 construction target - by 592

NBN Co exceeded its target - by 592 - to have construction commenced or completed in areas covering 758,000 premises before the end of 2012.

NBN Co CEO, Mike Quigley, said, "The National Broadband Network [NBN] is an ambitious project which requires the efforts of many people working cooperatively towards a common goal.

"To have achieved our year-end target is a clear indication that the NBN project is ramping up to full volume rollout."

He said by working closely together to achieve the year-end outcome, NBN CO's network planning and design team, contract managers and our construction partners had established the settings to reach the peak rollout target of passing over 6000 premises a day by 2015."

To date, NBN Co has contracted with four construction companies to build the local network through the streets. They are:

  • Silcar - NSW, Queensland and the ACT
  • Visionstream - Tasmania
  • Transfield -- Victoria
  • Syntheo (a Lend Lease/Service Stream joint venture) -- Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia

NBN Co's next goal is an end of June target of 286,000 premises passed over.
