Price announces NBN kicking off in Dongara

Member for Durack Melissa Price is pleased to announce about 2,400 premises will soon have faster internet with the construction of the NBN in Dongara 

Dongara residents will see nbn contractors laying cables and installing nodes over the coming weeks as the build out rolls out across the town. 

“This is great news for the people of Dongara,” Ms Price said. 

“Dongara is a valuable town in Durack, with hundreds of families from throughout the Mid West moving to the beachside town to retire. 

“These 2,400 premises will be receiving fibre to the node (FTTN) technology which is very fast broadband.” 

The start of the Dongara construction continues the NBN rollout in the Mid West with most of Geraldton already able to connect to the NBN, and with construction in Northampton and Kalbarri just months away. 

“nbn’s end-user trials have shown FTTN delivers great speeds to Australians, with most end-users on the trial getting wholesale speeds of 100 Mbps (download) and 40 Mbps (upload),” Ms Price said. 

“The rollout of the NBN in Dongara is an important step in reaching its goal of connecting eight million homes and businesses to the NBN by 2020.”
