Mystery solved: Council already has fibre

The green is NBN’s build preparation area, the yellow is the Princes Highway and right in between is the Shoalhaven City Council's administration building.

Shoalhaven City Council will not be affected by being left out of the first round of NBN installation in Nowra, with Mayor Joanna Gash confirming the organisation was already connected to fibre for its internet requirements.

According to NBN rollout map, council had been left out of the first round of installation.

The map shows a green boundary of the area to be included in the first phase of the rollout skirts around the council administration building.

The boundary came tantalisingly close, only a few metres from council’s door.

Investigations by Cr Gash  have discovered council is already ahead of the rest of the town, connected to fibre.

"Due to council's business needs, for a number of years it has been directly connected to fibre  for its internet needs,|" Cr Gash said.

"We have not relied on NBN connectivity."

A total of 2900 homes will be connected in Nowra and 2700 homes in West Nowra.
