Shepparton News - - NEWS -

Euroa res­i­dents still have some time to wait be­fore Na­tional Broad­band Net­work in­fra­struc­ture, cur­rently be­ing in­stalled in town, is avail­able for use.

The NBN has been busy in­stalling in­fra­struc­ture of above- and be­low-ground equip­ment at nine fi­bre-to-then­ode cab­i­nets in and around Euroa.

Ac­cord­ing to a Strath­bo­gie Shire Coun­cil spokesper­son, the main cab­i­nets be­ing in­stalled were power hubs ca­pa­ble of con­nect­ing be­tween 300 and 400 homes in fixed line ar­eas.

The lo­ca­tions in­cluded node cab­i­nets at 33 Templeton St, 124 Bin­ney St, 15 Weir St, 19 DeBoos St but phys­i­cally on Wil­liams St, op­po­site 30 Frost St but phys­i­cally on Rowe St, 24A Brock St, 3 Mans­field Rd, and mi­cron­ode cab­i­nets at 62-64 Tar­combe St but phys­i­cally lo­cated on Vi­dler St, and 5 Bal­mat­tum North Rd.

A Fi­bre Ac­cess Node fa­cil­ity will also be in­side the Tel­stra Ex­change build­ing on McGuin­ness St in Euroa.

Strath­bo­gie Shire Coun­cil Mayor Amanda McClaren said coun­cil would con­tinue to lobby for im­proved ser­vices for shire res­i­dents.
