Time Frame

 Fibre Rollout Forecast

The original (2011-13)  NBN Co Corporate Plan assumed that the rollout would be completed by December 2020 (9.5 years from July 2011). As a result of the delay of the Commencement Date of the Telstra Definitive Agreement from June 2011 to March 2012 there was a corresponding delay in the commencement of the volume rollout.

The 2012-15 NBN Corporate Plan  forecasts that 13 million premises will be passed or covered by NBN Co by the end of Financial Year 2021 (100% of premises across all networks). By the end of Financial Year 2015, NBN Co forecasts passing or covering 3.7 million premises, of which 2.9 million will be with Fibre.

The table below gives the NBN Co schedule  of the premises passes and connected.
