An event will be held on Thursday in Townsville, Queensland to celebrate the launch of the first release National Broadband Network trial site in the region.

Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, will be at the celebratory event alongside a number of NBN Co officials and industry representatives.

While the NBN is now live in all five first release trial locations including parts of Townsville,  Brunswick in Victoria, Kiama Downs and Minnamurra, NSW, and Armidale also in NSW, launch events have been progressively held to say thanks to the community and officially switch on the sites.

The Townsville site will be the fourth mainland site to be officially switched on, and follows NBN Co's launch event for the Brunswick trial site earlier this month.

Just one site of the five first release locations, in Willunga, South Australia, remains with NBN Co expecting to hold a launch event there by the end of September.


 

NBN Co have now begun to switch focus to the roll-out of the second stage trial sites, most of which expand upon the first stage NBN roll-out path.

Earlier this month, the organisation responsible for the roll out of the network detailed a timeline for works on the second stage sites, with work now underway in Armidale and Coffs Harbour, both situated in NSW.

It also laid out the first plans for the 4G wireless network that will be built in some rural locations across Australia where fibre isn't feasible.
