nbn is holding an information session for the Atherton Tablelands community in Queensland to prepare them for the proposed fixed line network and give them information on how to take advantage of the new broadband.
The nbn already has 24 fixed wireless facilities delivering services to more than 4,600 homes and businesses across the Tablelands, Mareeba and Cairns local government areas, with another 10 facilities approved and awaiting completion.
nbn Corporate Affairs Manager for Queensland, Kylie Lindsay urged residents to attend the Fixed Wireless Network Community Information Session to find out about the huge impact access to superfast broadband will have to the local region.
“Residents are invited to attend this information session to arm themselves with information and learn about how to maximise the opportunities presented by the nbn.
“This is an opportunity to ask questions about not only the fixed wireless network, but about the nbn in general.
Ms Lindsay said the nbn network will become critical for health, education, business development and the overall long-term sustainable growth of the Atherton Tablelands.
“It will provide real business and community opportunities, such as working from home, video conferencing, video and music streaming, tele-health and e-health and entertainment on demand.”
Along with fixed wireless, the nbn is using a mix of technologies, including fixed line and satellite to deliver high speed broadband to Australians.
The community information session for local residents and businesses will be held at 3pm on 4 February at the Yungaburra Community Hall.
