The NSW Government has engaged Opticomm to build a fibre to the premises network serving the Wamboin, Bywong and Sutton areas to the north-east of Canberra.

The $9.5 million rollout is expected to be completed in late 2023 and is part of the $100 million Gig State project within the government's Regional Digital Connectivity program, with the money coming from the $4.2 billion Snowy Hydro Legacy Fund.

"Over the past three years we have worked hard to find a solution that can overcome the region's challenging topography that includes hills and rocky terrain to deliver a service that is affordable, fast and reliable for the community," said Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole.

"Delivering this solution is another example of the NSW Government bridging the digital divide and stepping in to fix connectivity, bringing better internet service to communities previously on a satellite connection."

Member for Monaro Nichole Overall said "Installation of a new fibre network is a great outcome for these communities.

"Residents, families and small businesses in the region can now enjoy a fast and reliable connection to work, study, and manage their business from home; or just stream the latest movie."

Opticomm chief of infrastructure networks and technology Geoff Aldridge said "We're pleased to be partnering with the NSW Government to deploy a fibre to the premise network capable of super-fast speeds, that will support these communities with more than enough bandwidth now and into the future."
