At the end of 2016, we published a complete list of the Australian suburbs that were getting their internet upgraded to the NBN in 2017. At the end of 2017 - we didn't. We're jerks. But now, it's time to rectify that. The rollout continues in 2018, so read on to find out when your area will be getting connected.

In September 2017, the Joint Standing Committee on the National Broadband Network released a comprehensive report detailing the issues with the NBN and recommendations for the Government to improve the service. One of the chief recommendations was to complete much of the remaining fixed line network using, at a minimum, FTTC technology.
The Government's response to the first report has largely rubbished those recommendations.
The ramp-up of the nationwide NBN rollout means that more Australians are finally getting connected to the National Broadband Network. And that's a good thing. But the telecommunications industry ombudsman's bleak 2016-17 annual report shows that complaints about Australia's internet have overtaken mobile phones in volume, and over 27,000 complaints about the performance of the NBN represent a 160 per cent rise versus the year past.
Remember NBN's address checker tool? Despite a series of upgrades, the site never did a great job of providing an accurate answer on when you were getting connected. Now, NBN has rolled out yet another tweak to the search engine that actually makes it useful.
NBN Co's address checker tool can now tell you when NBN services will be available for your home or business, instead of just letting you know when the network will be rolled out in your area. It's gives a more accurate view of when the NBN is coming to your neck of the woods and you can try it out now.
