More NBN rolled out

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

RES­I­DENTS in parts of Man­ning, Sal­ter Point, Como, East Vic­to­ria Park and Carlisle should be able to ex­pe­ri­ence the ben­e­fits of fast broad­band fol­low­ing the of­fi­cial switchon of the na­tional broad­band net­work (NBN) in the area.

About 5200 homes and busi­nesses in parts of the sub­urbs will soon be able to con­nect to the NBN.

This an­nounce­ment be­gins the 18-month count­down for homes and busi­nesses to make the switch be­fore the NBN net­work re­places ex­ist­ing land­line and in­ter­net ser­vices.

“The NBN pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties to change the way Aus­tralians can en­joy in­home en­ter­tain­ment, do busi­ness and ac­cess med­i­cal ser­vices and elearn­ing re­sources,” NBN spokes­woman Phillipa Perry said.

“The move to the NBN is not au­to­matic and may take some plan­ning and co­or­di­na­tion.

“Res­i­dents and busi­ness own­ers in the area are en­cour­aged to con­tact their pre­ferred phone com­pany and in­ter­net ser­vice provider to con­nect their home or busi­ness.”
