Fixed line users in Kawana urged to avoid dis­con­nec­tion as cop­per era comes to an end

Con­nect now to avoid be­ing dis­con­nected

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE | EDUCATION -

It’s been 18 months in the mak­ing, but there are now just 36 days left be­fore the nbn per­ma­nently re­places fixed line ser­vices for res­i­dents of Wur­tulla with more ar­eas to fol­low. To avoid any po­ten­tial dis­rup­tion to land­line and broad­band ser­vices, homes and busi­nesses will need to con­nect to the nbn net­work.

With ex­ist­ing land­line and in­ter­net ser­vices on the old cop­per net­work set to be switched off in the first parts of the re­gion from 10 Novem­ber, there’s still time for Kawana res­i­dents and busi­nesses, in ar­eas in­clud­ing Wur­tulla, Cur­rum­ndi, Warana, Par­reara, Boka­rina, Moun­tain Creek and Bu­d­ina, who haven’t yet made ar­range­ments, to place an or­der and start ben­e­fit­ting from Tel­stra ser­vices on the nbn net­work.

High speed broad­band on the nbn net­work is not only im­prov­ing the qual­ity of ex­ist­ing dig­i­tal ex­pe­ri­ences for Kawana lo­cals, but also open­ing up op­por­tu­ni­ties for dig­i­tal in­no­va­tion.

As a na­tion, we’re stream­ing more video con­tent than ever, up­load­ing huge amounts of data and, by 2021, each house­hold is ex­pected to own more than 30 con­nected de­vices. With this in­creased avail­abil­ity of high speed broad­band, the nbn roll out is set to su­per­charge this tech­nol­ogy adop­tion within the com­mu­nity.

nbn tech­nol­ogy can help fam­i­lies to stream, game and work si­mul­ta­ne­ously while keep­ing up with the rise of the con­nected home and state-of-the-art au­toma­tion sys­tems, such as Tel­stra Smart Home.

As Aus­tralia’s reliance on broad­band grows, so does the ex­pec­ta­tion of be­ing con­nected. Tel­stra’s new Fron­tier Gate­way can get cus­tomers con­nected in min­utes us­ing Tel­stra’s mo­bile net­work.

Busi­nesses will be­come more mo­bile, with the com­bined strengths of the nbn net­work and Tel­stra prod­ucts bring­ing of­fice-like speeds and ca­pa­bil­i­ties to the home and of­fice to en­hance pro­duc­tiv­ity and cre­ate more op­por­tu­ni­ties for re­mote and cloud-based work­ing.

As Aus­tralia’s largest fullser­vice provider, Tel­stra’s net­work of stores, cus­tomer ser­vice teams and lo­cal field tech­ni­cians are com­mit­ted to help­ing ev­ery mem­ber of the Kawana and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties get the most out of their broad­band ser­vice.

Kawana and Caloun­dra Tel­stra Stores at ei­ther end of the de­com­mis­sion­ing ar­eas are con­tin­u­ing to host a pro­gram of ded­i­cated com­mu­nity days and drop in ses­sions for per­son­alised ad­vice on the best course of ac­tion for set­ting up an nbn con­nec­tion and of­fer­ing face to face vis­its with Busi­nesses at their premises

For more in­for­ma­tion on switch­ing to the nbn or for de­tails on up­com­ing nbn events in your area, drop into your lo­cal Tel­stra store at Kawana or Caloun­dra shop­ping cen­tres or visit the Tel­stra Busi­ness Cen­tre Sun­shine Coast lo­cated in the Kon-Tiki build­ing at Ma­roochy­dore, Al­ter­na­tively cus­tomers can call the lo­cal team on 1300 881 800.

High speed broad­band on the nbn net­work is not only im­prov­ing the qual­ity of ex­ist­ing dig­i­tal ex­pe­ri­ences for Kawana lo­cals, but also open­ing up op­por­tu­ni­ties for dig­i­tal in­no­va­tion.
