Independent Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan AO, has welcomed the National Broadband Network (NBN) announcement that the long-term satellite rollout begins today. An estimated 250,000 homes and businesses across Australia are expected to benefit from this service.
“Rural and remote communities in Indi will be better connected with more access to online resources and business opportunities” Ms McGowan said.
“More than 3500 premises in Indi are expected to benefit from this exciting new technology. This is wonderful news for towns in the Alpine regions like Kancoona, Mudgegonga, Rosewhite and the Buckland Valley”.
“The new long term satellite will deliver download speeds of up to 25 megabits per second and upload speeds of 5 megabits per second”. Effective lobbying delivers results.
“I am pleased that many households in Indi will have access to more than 5 times the download speeds on the new satellite” Ms McGowan said.
Eligible customers can now contact NBN satellite internet service providers in their area to connect to faster, more reliable satellite broadband. To check eligibility and plans, please visit the NBN Co website www.nbnco.com.au or call 1800 687 626.
