Weekly progress report
The downloadable chart shows the progress of the rollout outlining the number of premises passed, the services activated, and those passed but currently ‘Not yet ready to connect’.
Variations in numbers from week to week reflect the modular construction program. That is construction is completed in blocks, so that there may be large upward jumps in some weeks and less or none in others. Following completion of the construction process passing premises in the streets, further validation of address data is undertaken of the ‘as-built’ network against estimates obtained from national address data. There may be some fluctuation in numbers from week to week as a result.
