In the lead up to Christmas, the Government announced it would roll out a nationwide network upgrade in time for the New Year.
The upgrade would be rolled out on the NBN, which will be the backbone of the country’s communications network.
But, in the last few days, it has emerged that the Government is now planning to roll out an upgrade to the NBN in a more isolated location.
In an email to subscribers, the NBN Co says it has not yet commenced the upgrade in the remote areas of the state and the remote rollout is “currently being planned”.
In a statement, NBN Co said the upgrade is planned to begin at the end of the year and will be completed by the end or beginning of 2018.
It said that the upgrade would involve a complete overhaul of the existing network.
However, the upgrade was originally due to be completed in late 2018.
However the rollout of the upgrade has now been delayed.
The Government said it will deliver the upgrade by the middle of next year, but it will still be possible to upgrade to a new service from a local provider.
The announcement came after the Government said the roll out of the NBN would begin in April 2018.
