Telstra InfraCo is building the fibre network of the future
An additional 20,000 kilometres of new fibre technology to enable ultrafast connectivity across Australia and into many remote areas.
Future-proofing Australia's digital economy, building world-class solutions
20,000 kilometres of new, ultrafast inter-city dual fibre paths.
Accelerating opportunities for our country
We will dramatically increase Australia's total network capacity with transmission rates of up to 650Gbps – six times today’s common rate of 100Gbps.
The new point-to-point fibre technology will support remote working and education, health services, high-definition entertainment, online gaming and IoT for industries like mining and agriculture.
It builds upon the fibre network and substantial sub-sea routes we have in place today, to deliver end-to-end solutions on a truly global scale.
Designed in Australia, for Australians
Partnering with global technology leaders, Prysmian and Corning, we will purpose-design optic fibre cable to address Australia’s unique environmental conditions. The cable will be designed and manufactured in Australia at Prysmian’s factory in Dee Why, Sydney.
The project will leverage Prysmian’s proven underground cable technology, developed for Telstra and extensively deployed in Australia for over two decades. The cable used for the new fibre network will combine Corning’s market-leading long-haul high-speed fibre with a new design that is smaller and lighter, representing a new benchmark in fibre density. This market-leading solution will enable unprecedented transmission rates, low latency and scalability.
