nbn is working with councils to facilitate the rollout of fast broadband.
Our aim is to work in partnership with local government to deliver the benefits of broadband to residents and businesses with minimum disruption to the community.
We are committed to working collaboratively with local government on the design and deployment of the nbn™ broadband access network. Working together, we want to ensure we deliver a lasting, positive legacy for the local community. To achieve this, local government has a critical role to play as they are best placed to ensure nbn are aware of any potential local issues or requirements that need to be taken into consideration through planning, construction and mobilisation of the nbn™ broadband access network. Local government can also add valuable, specialist resources and channels to engage and educate local residents and businesses.
nbn has established a dedicated team who are tasked with engaging with communities and developing the crucial partnerships with local, national and state governments. nbn's Community Affairs Team work to ensure key stakeholders within local government and other regulatory authorities are kept well informed throughout the rollout of the nbn™ broadband access network.
