NBN Co picks Merimbula for first satellite earth station

By
NBN Co has chosen Merimbula on the NSW Far South Coast as the site of its first of 10 satellite earth stations it plans to build to relay traffic between NBN's satellite connected customers and terrestrial networks. It is scheduled to be up and running in 2015.

The site, in Wolumla approximately 15 kilometres north-west of Merimbula, will house the gateway and six satellite dishes and was "selected following extensive consultation with Bega Valley Shire Council," NBN Co says.

Matt Dawson, NBN Co's satellite project director, said: "Merimbula was chosen for a number of reasons: The climate is perfect for our needs. It's also located close to reliable power and other infrastructure including the NBN's core fibre transit network."

The mayor of Bega Valley Shire Council, Tony Allen, said that NBN Co would make more information available about the construction of the site when it lodged its development application. "Community members will then be welcome to make comments and ask questions during the DA process."
