NBN just a little closer for Euroa residents
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.
