The company rolling out Australia’s National Broadband Network (NBN) has made just three fibre-to-the-premises (FttP) connections under its technology choice program since launch a year ago.“There have been three fibre-to-the-premises
connections through the technology choice program,” NBN said in response
to a Senate Estimates Question on Notice.
The fibre-on-demand program, launched in March 2015, offers Australians a pure
fibre alternative to NBN’s fibre-to-the-node (FttN), fibre-to-the-basement
(FttB), fibre-to-the-distribution-point (FttDP) and satellite connections — if
customers pay an application fee which NBN said last year could average around
$4,300 per premises.
