This is on top of almost 116,000 home and business owners in New South Wales who are already able to connect to the NBN.
NBN Co spokesperson Darren Rudd said information is already available online about the plans and packages being offered by phone companies and internet providers.
"The latest announcement continues the momentum of the NBN rollout in NSW and means more construction workers will be rolling out the NBN faster to the state.
"People who have already made the switch tell us they enjoy having all the family online at once, making high-quality video calls with fewer drop outs, downloading movies in minutes and streaming TV.**
"All you need to do is call your preferred phone or internet company to prepare to be one of the first to connect to the service when it comes online," Mr Rudd said.
On average it takes around 12 months from the start of construction until residents and business owners can access services over the NBN from phone and internet providers.
