The NBN is a long way off coming to Sandford. The build has commenced in Howrah which is a number of suburbs away from Sandford. There is no timeline on when the work in Howrah will be completed and it will be connected to the NBN. Therefore there is even less information on when Sandford will be connected. It simply says that it is unavailable and that the rollout has not started in that area. Since the change of goverment 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.
