Wamboin, Bywong and Sutton residents can look forward to high-speed and reliable Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP) internet, thanks to the NSW Government’s $9.5 million agreement with Opticomm.
The Opticomm deal will connect more than 1300 addresses using a solution that can overcome the region’s challenging topography, which includes hills and rocky terrain, to deliver a service that is affordable to install and well suited for rural communities.
Opticomm Chief of Infrastructure Networks & Technology Geoff Aldridge said the company had a long-standing history of building, owning and operating residential fibre networks throughout Australia.
“We’re pleased to be partnering with the NSW Government to deploy a fibre to the premise network capable of super-fast speeds, that will support these communities with more than enough bandwidth now and into the future,” Mr Aldridge said.
The Wamboin, Bywong and Sutton fibre network is expected to be completed in late 2023 as part of the Regional Digital Connectivity program.
Improving regional internet connectivity is a priority of the Regional Digital Connectivity program and funded through the Snowy Hydro Legacy Fund.
