Upgrades from your existing nbn connection to nbn Fibre to the Premise (FTTP)
Over the past few years regional telecommunications networks have been upgraded or put on upgrade lists. BIRRR has recognised that it can be complex to find out if your community/address is getting an upgrade. Thus, we have developed a series of maps.
This map and the following information relates to the various programs currently available that will see upgrades to nbn various nbn technologies (including nbn satellite and nbn Fibre to the Node (FTTN)) to nbn Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) which will deliver choice of provider and plans with faster speeds, unlimited data and more network capacity.
nbn Fibre Upgrades
Upgrades to parts of the nbn Fibre to the Node (FTTN) network to nbn Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) eligibility announcements have been made since September 2020. This map uses the data provided here, which has been updated regularly since 2020 by nbn. The locations are mapped on suburb/town and state details, so are estimates only.
Regional Connectivity Program grants
Additionally, this map lists the Regional Connectivity Program grants for nbn Sky Muster Satellite to nbn FTTP tech flips. The Regional Connectivity Program (the RCP) is a grants program funding the delivery of ‘place-based’ telecommunications infrastructure projects to improve digital connectivity across regional, rural and remote Australia.

NBN & Victorian Gov
A co-investment agreement between NBN Co and the Victorian Government has been announced in three stages. The announcements will upgrade nbn technology in many regional towns across Victoria. More details here
A map of the locations can be found here
Disclaimer – not all dwellings in the mapped town/suburb will be eligible for the nbn FTTP upgrade.
nbn Maps will only update the information for you dwelling once the project is built. In the meantime, the map for your town/suburb may look like this one for Alpha, QLD (the only indicator is in the legend).
Your specific address will only be updated once the project has been built. Check the nbn roll out map for further details: www.nbnco.com.au/learn/rollout
BIRRR mapped grant programs
BIRRR have also mapped the Regional Connectivity Program (RCP), TIEP, PUMP and the NBN/VIC upgrade programs. They are all different grants programs funding the delivery of ‘place-based’ telecommunications infrastructure projects to improve digital connectivity across regional, rural and remote Australia.
