NBN Co reveals rollout progress

NBN Co has reported "massive progress" in its IT infrastructure rollout as it started work on the first of two data centres and embarked on a second wave of recruitment to support the deployment program.

The network builder's head of portals and online services Michael Bromley told a conference yesterday that NBN Co had received the go-ahead to construct its first data centre.

It would be brought online by next January, he said.
