Southern Highlands villagers can now decide if they would like to connect to the nbn with the activitation of more fixed-wireless towers.
About 550 premises in and around Bundanoon and Wingello can now access the nbn through dozens of retail providers.
Hume MP Angus Taylor said he had been working to ensure rollout in the southern villages was a priority.
“This is a tremendous breakthrough for these communities who have justifiably been calling for improved telecommunications for many years,” he said.
The Burrawang tower is now also live, and towers for Exeter and Berrima in planning.
