NBN Co has released a new fibre map for the area of Toormina and Sawtell.

The new map details an extension to the previously announced rollout area, and is in line with NBN Co's commitment to release new information as plans are completed for additional modules in a rollout site.

NBN Co. says each new module covers up to 3000 homes and businesses.

With the new map now released, NBN Co's construction partners can undertake detailed on-site design and survey works leading to the installation of fibre in this coverage area in months to come.

On average it will take 12 months from the start of construction until residents and business owners will be able to order active high speed broadband services.

The map can be found on the NBN Co website at http://www.nbnco.com.au/rollout/about-the-rollout/communities-in-the-rollout.html. The direct link to the map is http://www.nbnco.com.au/assets/maps/toormina-nsw-rollout-map-sawtell-2saw-01.pdf.

NBN Co has also recently released a new online interactive map that allows members of the community to check the status of the rollout by typing in their location or postcode.

That can be seen at http://www.nbnco.com.au/rollout/rollout-map.html also attached as a PDF for your reference.
