Caboolture and Narangba are among the suburbs which be eligible to upgrade to NBN’s Fibre to the Premises (FTTP).
Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, Paul Fletcher, said the announcement would bring the total to 1.6 million premises of the two million target.
“This next stage will see another 200,000 premises eligible, many of which are in the Longman electorate, which will drive significant benefits to the community,” Minister Fletcher said.
“NBN Co will now work with its construction and delivery partners to get premises in Longman ready to upgrade to ultrafast speeds when they choose to do so.
“This represents a key part of NBN Co’s $3.5 billion investment that will see 75 per cent of Australia’s fixed line network able to access ultrafast broadband by 2023.”
Federal Member for Longman Terry Young said: “This will create jobs, ensure businesses can access the speeds they need to thrive and improve connectivity for families.
“Households and businesses in towns like Caboolture and Narangba will be able to access NBN Co’s fastest internet plans of up to 1 gigabit per second, on demand by 2023.
“I expect more suburbs will follow in the future.”
