NBN Co has laid the first local fibre optic cable in metropolitan Adelaide as part of the widespread rollout of the National Broadband Network in South Australia.
And super-fast broadband is also a step closer in Western Australia after NBN Co installed the first local fibre optic cable in Mandurah.
In Adelaide, distribution fibre linking the Prospect exchange to the local area was installed on the corner of Ballville Street and Prospect Terrace.
"This fibre haul marks an important step in the rollout of the NBN in Adelaide," NBN Co spokesperson Tony Gibbs said. "The construction shows work is underway to build the network, which will provide super-fast broadband to parts of Adelaide throughout 2014."
Design and construction work has already commenced on rolling out the NBN to around 15,000 homes and businesses in Prospect. NBN Co is aiming to finish the first stages of construction in Prospect by the end of the year, and homes and businesses are expected to be able to connect to services over the NBN soon after.

McLaren Vale, South of Adelaide, is the latest area NBN Co has begun connecting to the National Broadband Network with fibre optic cable.
The distribution fibre was hauled today on the corner of Kangarilla Road and Ingoldby Road in McLaren Flat to connect the McLaren Vale exchange to the local area and ultimately to 2034 local homes and businesses in the wine growing district.
For information on how the rollout is progressing in your area, please refer to the NBN Co rollout map.

Ceduna in the West Coast region of South Australia will house the next satellite ground station for NBN Co's Long Term Satellite Service.
The ground station will play a key part of connecting Australians in isolated areas to fast broadband.
The ground station will be located on Goode Road, approximately two kilometres north-east of Ceduna, and will act as an essential transmission centre to deliver the NBN to homes, farms and businesses in remote areas including Oodnadatta, Marree and Wilpena Pound
Imagine if you could step back into 19th century school life and experience learning the way your grandparents and great grandparents did.
A new online learning program being enabled by the NBN in some areas called Old School-New School, is aiming to help children across Australia do just that.
High speed broadband is opening up Australia's museums to students all over the country. We had a chat to History South Australia's Project Manager, Darren Peacock, to find out how.

Today NBN Co announced that the NBN fibre rollout plan will expand to around a third of the country’s homes and businesses over the next three years, across 1,500 communities in every state and territory, covering 3.5 million premises.
An interesting story behind the story is how these locations were chosen.
