Residents of Coffs Harbour will have the opportunity to learn more about the national broadband network and the many benefits it offers homes and businesses through the NBN Connect Roadshow.
Located at City Square until 15 March 2015, the Connect Roadshow is in town to celebrate the national broadband network in Coffs Harbour. The roadshow features NBN Co experts available to answer community questions; and an enormous ‘NBN’ letter sculpture that local artists, school students and community leaders are invited to paint in a way that visualises what the national broadband network means to the Coffs Harbour community.
Throughout the week the Connect Roadshow team will also host information sessions specially designed for families and seniors to help them connect to the network and understand how they can start experiencing its many benefits. Several internet service providers will also have marquees set up beside the NBN Co stand to help residents choose the right NBN plan for their household or business needs.
NBN Co Spokesperson, Darren Rudd said “Coffs Harbour is one of the most connected cities in Australia, so the NBN Connect Roadshow is about helping residents to get online and start realising the benefits of fast broadband.
“When connected the network will help people access e-health, distance education and entertainment on demand, whilst businesses have the ability to increase productivity, reduce costs and access new markets.
“However, the move to the national broadband network is not automatic. So I encourage everyone in the region to contact their preferred service provider or come visit us at the Connect Roadshow.”
Chris Chapman, Director Sustainable Communities at Coffs Harbour City Council said “The advanced rollout of the network offers the city of Coffs Harbour a unique competitive advantage and the Connect Roadshow will help us realise it.
“Residents and businesses will learn how to get connected faster and begin experiencing the many benefits of fast broadband. It’s another step forward for the city in realising its Switched On Coffs Digital Strategy.”
