NBN nears Childers
WORK has begun on bringing the NBN to Apple Tree Creek and Horton but there are no plans to bring the broadband network to Childers – yet. Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt said the government was “delivering on its promise to deliver the NBN sooner” by using a mix of technology. It is understood Apple Tree Creek and Horton will receive “fixed wireless internet towers” while the more densely populated Childers could receive a different delivery system, namely Fibre To The Node (FTTN), but details are yet to be released.
