The latest progress report says progress over the last nine months means 7.5 million premises are “ready for service”.

And that total $1.4 billion in revenue? That’s up by 112 per cent since March last year.

NBN says this is “on the back of solid progress on construction, activations and customer experience improvements during the period”.

Optimisation work on Hybrid Fibre Coaxial network – after shutting it down entirely – as well as wholesale pricing offers and “internal process improvements” are scoring thumbs ups from NBN.

NBN also reckons the Multi-Technology Mix has let the network “scale quickly”. NBN says everything is on track to complete 75 per cent of the build by the end of the year.

NBN says 91 per cent of NBN equipment installations “within the company’s control” are achieved correctly at the first appointment.

“These results demonstrate the progress we’re making on our top three priorities, which are to complete the build by 2020, improve the end user experience, and deliver a modest return on the tax payer’s investment,” NBN Co Chief Executive, Bill Morrow, said. “We’ve shown stable performance against our long-term goals on the build side and significant improvements on customer experience.”

“Our monthly progress report demonstrates that our customer experience program is working, and we know there’s more to do to get this right. The NBN Co team, delivery partners and RSPs are working quickly to make improvements across the industry for a better experience for all.”
