Telstra gets $1.6bn to help deliver NBN's HFC rollout

Telstra has won a $1.6 billion contract to help build out and upgrade its hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC) network for the NBN.

The deal comes on top of $11 billion definitive agreements already signed between Telstra and the national network builder, which were renegotiated in late 2014 to include Telstra's HFC network. The telco today said that under the deal - expected to run until 2020 - Telstra would deliver all design, program management, construction management and scheduling activities within its HFC footprint across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Perth and Adelaide.

The bulk of field construction would be undertaken by NBN build partners, the telco said, while Telstra would deliver in-exchange construction activities and limited upstream in-field construction.
