VIC­TO­RIA Park res­i­dents can now ex­pe­ri­ence higher qual­ity pub­lic in­ter­net ac­cess.

Town of Vic­to­ria Park teamed up with Tel­stra to upgrade the Dig­i­tal Hub and tran­si­tion it on to the Na­tional Broad­band Net­work (NBN).

Tel­stra area gen­eral man­ager Guy Cham­pion said the upgrade was part of an ex­cit­ing time for the Town.

“We’ve been work­ing closely with the Town of Vic­to­ria Park to tai­lor an NBN so­lu­tion that best boosts the Hub’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties and ul­ti­mately ben­e­fits the lo­cal com­mu­nity,” Mr Cham­pion said.

“The Dig­i­tal Hub will con­tinue to be an im­proved free re­source to pro­vide unique in­sights into the ex­cit­ing new tech­nol­ogy and how it can ben­e­fit their lives.

“Vis­i­tors can learn about ev­ery­thing from tech­nol­ogy and in­ter­net ba­sics, right up to how to help their busi­ness utilise cloud tech­nol­ogy.”

Vic­to­ria Park is one of the speed­i­est in­ter­net ar­eas in WA, with 20,000 homes and busi­nesses con­nected or able to con­nect to the NBN since it was first switched on three years ago.

Mr Cham­pion said the ex­ten­sion of Tel­stra’s ser­vices on the NBN was hap­pen­ing in East Vic­to­ria Park, Carlisle, Kew­dale, Welsh­pool and Bent­ley.

“This is a re­ally ex­cit­ing time for the peo­ple of Vic­to­ria Park and the sur- round­ing ar­eas,” he said.

“The ex­pan­sion of fast in­ter­net across the re­gion marks the be­gin­ning of a new tech­nol­ogy driven era for lo­cals and makes Vic­to­ria Park one of the most highly con­nected ar­eas in WA.

“The NBN will give th­ese peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to tap into a va­ri­ety of new and emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies made pos­si­ble by fast and re­li­able broad­band.”

Coun­cil, Tel­stra rep­re­sen­ta­tives, res­i­dents and lo­cal busi­nesses cel­e­brated the up­graded Hub at a spe­cial func­tion last week to test drive the new NBN ser­vice on of­fer.

Town of Vic­to­ria Park Dig­i­tal Hub is at 1 Harper Street, Vic­to­ria Park.
