Crace — which covers suburbs such as Gungahlin — is a major star of this month's take-up figures, particularly the -06 FSAM which more than doubled the number of active internet users in just five weeks.

The take-up rates provide encouragement that, if approved, NBN Co's acquisition of TransACT's fibre-to-the-premises network — which spans nearby suburbs — should substantially boost the company's overall take-up numbers.

FSAM code Location  Total Premises Take-up Rate (April. 19) Retail connections (April. 19) Take-up Rate (May 30) Retail connections (May 30)
9CRC-06 Crace 1600 15.9% 254 35.9% 574
9CRC-03 Crace 2500 13.9% 348 24.2% 605

Back in April, the mainland first release site of Willunga was "broaching 60 percent".

It took just five weeks to get the numbers to surpass it, and remains the second highest rollout region anywhere on the fibre network in percentage terms for take-up.

FSAM code Location  Total Premises Take-up Rate (April. 19) Retail connections (April. 19) Take-up Rate (May 30) Retail connections (May 30)
5ALD-01 Willunga 1100 56.9% 626 63.4% 697

 

New areas

The numbers here are much smaller than in the more established FSAMs, but this represents the first disclosure of take-up rates in these rollout areas by NBN Co.

The Crace numbers here are particularly strong — 9CRC-01 has been accepting retail connections for just nine weeks, -05 for just eleven.

The take-up numbers are just the beginning, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy suggested.

"In [9CRC-01], more than 34 percent of houses in the footprint have ordered service in under two months," he said.

This would likely be reflected as active connections in the next dataset, whenever it gets released.

The Bacchus Marsh, Aspley and Toowoomba numbers are from 22 weeks' retail availability; Coffs Harbour from 11 weeks, and Armidale from 9 weeks.

FSAM code Location  Total Premises Take-up Rate (May 30) Retail connections (May 30)
9CRC-01 Crace 2700 14.3% 386
3BAC-02 Bacchus Marsh 2100 13.0% 273
4APL-01 Aspley 1900 12.6% 239
4TOB-01 Toowoomba 2700 11.0% 297
2ARM-06 Armidale 2600 9.4% 244
9CRC-05 Crace 2700 5.2% 140
2CFS-02 Coffs Harbour 2655 3.2% 85
