Many areas of Richmond are already connected to the NBN via a fixed wireless service. However, as yet not all streets have been connected. Since the change of government in September of 2013 the NBN website has been a lot less informative and they only provide details of where there is build preparation, where the build has commenced and where service is available via a shaded map. However, there is no detail in regard to dates of when the stages of the service are likely to be completed. To check whether the NBN is available at your address use this link: http://www.nbnco.com.au/develop-or-plan-with-the-nbn/check-rollout-map.html and put your address into the address bar.
