Around 1900 households and businesses in Kallangur and Dakabin are a step closer to accessing the National Broadband Network with build preparation underway.
Over the next few weeks, workers will be in the streets of both suburbs on pre-construction activities such as clearing Telstra’s pits and ducts.

Federal member for Dickson Peter Dutton said he had been been fighting to improve local internet infrastructure for years.
“Since the change of government there have been significant improvements in the NBN rollout, and Kallangur is one of the latest local suburbs to benefit,” he said.
“Residents who would still be left wanting under Labor’s shambolic scheme are being connected to the NBN sooner and at lower cost under the Coalition.
“Dickson is finally being connected to the high speed internet that local residents and businesses deserve.”
Federal MP for Longman Wyatt Roy said the work was an important milestone for Dakabin.
“The message for these residents is clear – superfast broadband is on the way,” he said.
“The Coalition government is doing what we said we would do … getting the NBN project back on track and rolling out superfast broadband cheaper and faster.
“NBN Co’s Strategic Review revealed that Labor’s version of the NBN wouldn’t be completed until 2024.”
Mr Roy said that since the last federal election, NBN Co had more than doubled the reach of its fibre network – now passing more than half-a-million premises nationwide.
Total connections to the NBN’s various networks, including the fixed line and wireless networks and the interim satellite service stand at 290,000.
