Wamboin, Bywong and Sutton internet connectivity

Over $10 million is being invested to future-proof and improve connectivity in the Wamboin, Bywong and Sutton region through Opticomm's Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP) network.

Opticomm will use innovative, next-generation technology to deliver a service which is affordable to install and is able to overcome the regions challenging topography.

Over 1400 addresses are eligible to connect to the new fibre network, which is expected to be completed in late 2023.

Next steps

Opticomm has begun work in Sutton Village and this will continue to be delivered in stages, connecting small groups of addresses at a time.

The rollout is then expected to move from Sutton towards Bywong and Wamboin, contingent on conditions.

Opticomm will provide information packs to eligible addresses during the rollout to outline the scope of work and steps residents take to prepare for the installation and connection at their home.

Residents included in the first stage of work in Sutton Village should have already received their information pack in the mail. Subsequent areas will receive their information pack from early 2023.

To check whether your home is in the rollout area, and for further updates about the project, visit Opticomm’s website.
