First NBN fibre laid in Strathfield and Homebush in NSW

Around 7900 premises will be linked to the NBN in Homebush and Strathfield by mid-this year.

Strathfield in New South Wales is one step closer to receiving the National Broadband Network (NBN) following the first fibre optic cable being laid in the area.

The fibre will link the Homebush exchange to the local area and was laid at the corner of Todman Place and Barker Road.

Around 7900 premises will be linked to the NBN in Homebush and Strathfield by mid-this year, which would allow premises to connect to the network shortly afterwards.

NBN Co announced on Friday it had completed construction on 4000 premises in Gungahlin in the ACT.

Around 1700 premises in Toowoomba were also recently connected to the NBN.
