Greenfields downgrade

As in brownfields areas, NBN Co is looking at passing substantially less greenfields premises in the month of June than first thought.

A preliminary run of the data still has NBN Co achieving a premises passed number within its 35K-45K target range, but in the lower end of that range. Again, there doesn't seem to be much possibility of beating the target range now.

Month Premises (April RFS) Premises (May RFS) Premises (June RFS)
April 5391 (5391)  
May 6323 6923 (6923)
June 7083 7069 5451

On that basis, NBN Co is looking at a minimum premises passed number for greenfields of 36,562 by the end of June 30, slightly above its minimum target.

This may be a bit conservative. MyNBN.info reports that NBN Co had passed 37,067 greenfields premises by the end of May. With the latest June statistics, that would put the company on track to pass 42,518 new premises with fibre — a far healthier result.

The big picture

If NBN Co stays on track, it will achieve total premises passed by fibre in the range of 188,798 and 214,521 by the end of June.

Its target is between 190,000 and 220,000.

It's no longer going to beat its revised June targets for brownfields, greenfields or the two taken together.

But it's still on track to meet them if it can muster one final construction push to get over the line in a fortnight's time.
