Work from Home towns in NSW

📅 Posted 2020-09-26

So, this whole ‘work from home’ thing is working out OK yeah?

What if you wanted to get out of the city centre, out of Sydney and move to a ‘more’ country location and keep working as if you were in the room next door?

Good internet is a must. And there is only one worthwhile technology: Fibre to the Premises (FTTP). Anything else is just a waste of time.

Why the NBN got junked and turned into a hodge-podge of outdated technologies is definitely beyond the scope of this article. So, let’s keep things positive and consider places around NSW which have a large amount of fibre for that sweet-sweet gigabit connection potential!

Casting my eyes across the NBN MTM rollout map, I see the following places have decent connections:

  • Armidale
  • Bomaderry
  • Bombo
  • Coffs Harbour
  • Corrimal
  • Dapto
  • Googong
  • Gungahlin (technically ACT)
  • Jambaroo
  • Kiama
  • Kiama Downs
  • Korora
  • Minnamurra
  • Nowra
  • Queanbeyan
  • Sawtell
  • Shellharbour
  • South Maitland
  • Taree
  • The Entrance
  • Toormina

There’s a fair few more subdivisions around the state and some new areas which also have FTTP, but I won’t go into too much detail listing those here. I wanted to focus on the places which have a majority of FTTP available and where you’re pretty much guaranteed to find a great connection.

Kiama is probably the standout option here, with a train connection back to Sydney and a lovely village feel. The train ride is a tad over 2 hours, which is not bad considering the distance travelled and could be tolerable once or twice a week.

Where would you move to?
