What’s involved in the network build?

Survey Phase 1 Surveying
Physical surveys are required to examine the existing pole and duct network for inclusion in the design.
Design Phase 2 Design
NBI’s detailed design process covers infrastructure, power and footprint required, drawings, openeir works, Local Authority requirements and revised cost analysis.
Build Phase 3 Build
After the designs have been approved, work can start on the ground. This includes everything from readying existing infrastructure to laying fibre.
Order your connection Phase 4 Order your connection
Once the build is complete, an order can be placed with a broadband service provider who is registered to sell on the NBI™ network.
Connection Phase 5 Connection
NBI™ will connect your premises on behalf of your preferred broadband service provider. Once connected to the NBI™ network, you will have guaranteed access to minimum speeds of 500Mb.
