NBN Co, the company overseeing the rollout of the National Broadband Network (NBN), has already said it will be deploying fibre-to-the-distribution point (FTTdp) to a number suburbs across Australia. We now know which suburbs are likely to get FTTdp. Here's the list.
Also known as fibre-to-the-curb, FTTdp is arguably a better option than fibre-to-the-node (FTTN), the predominant technology that is being used for the NBN. The company has previously stated that it intends to replace the Optus HFC assets that it bought in 2011 with FTTdp.
As reported by iTNews and confirmed by NBN Co to Lifehacker Australia, the 42 suburbs that are likely to the get FTTdp include:
- Edensor Park
- Frenchs Forest
- Hunters Hill
- Mona Vale
- Orchard Hill
- Mount Eliza
- North Esssendon
This FTTdp rollout covers around 450,000 premises. Is your suburb on the list? Let us know in the comments.
