NBN coming to Banyule

Superfast broadband is coming to more than 56,000 homes and businesses in Banyule under an accelerated three-year rollout of the nbn.

I’m pleased that Banyule residents of which a majority live far from exchanges, causing slow internet speeds, will be able to gain an NBN connection as early as next year. It’s important for our young families and small businesses that we all have access to fast broadband.

Internet access is important for our community and will transform education, health care and other critical online services.

Across Banyule thousands of residents will benefit from broadband upgrades in areas including:
