The Federal Government announced the New Developments Policy and implementation plan in 2010. Starting from 1 January 2011, broad acre developments (new greenfield subdivisions) and infill developments with 100 premises or more (subdivisions or multi-dwelling projects) will have fibre infrastructure installed by NBN Co.
NBN Co will cover the cost of fibre infrastructure in newly approved developments with 100 or more premises and developers will be responsible for installing pit and pipe infrastructure.
Developments with less than 100 premises will need to request telecommunications infrastructure installation from other telecommunications providers. These developments may receive copper, wireless or fibre infrastructure. Once the National Broadband Network rollout has reached a region and is ready for service, NBN Co will provide fibre infrastructure to new developments with less than 100 premises and will also provide fibre infrastructure to those developments within NBN Co's fibre footprint which had received copper or wireless services.
Developers who have panially completed estates or developers who have already requested broadband infrastructure from another provider prior to 1 January 2011 should read through their service arrangement options provided in detail in the ‘Pre-existing service applications’ clause in the New Developments Policy available at on the Department Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy website.
Developers can also contact NBN Co via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if they have questions
about how this will work.

Starting from 1 January 2011 developers with developments of 100 premises or more can register requests
