Telstra on track with NSW broadband network

Last schools getting connected.

Telstra has completed "95 percent" of a $280 million fibre network connecting 2,400 public school and TAFE sites across NSW.

The NSW Government said today that remaining schools would be connected to the 4,500 kilometre optic fibre network before the end of the year.

"Only ten contracted schools now remain and we expect those sites to be connected by the end of this year - which is still within schedule," state education minister Verity Firth said.

"The infrastructure rollout has now been officially met having exceeded the contracted target of 95 percent completion."

Telstra won the contract to build the network and provide services for an initial four-year period in November 2009.
