Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of Tel­stra cus­tomers in selected parts of Proser­pine and Air­lie Beach can now con­nect to the Na­tional Broad­band Net­work (NBN) us­ing speedy fixed wire­less tech­nol­ogy.

Tel­stra Coun­try Wide Area Gen­eral Man­ager for North Queens­land, Rachel Cliffe, said the launch of Tel­stra ser­vices on the NBN Co’s fixed wire­less net­work would mark the be­gin­ning of a new era for lo­cals, putting a range of new ser­vices and ap­pli­ca­tions within reach of Whit­sun­day res­i­dents and businesses.

“Fixed wire­less on the NBN can pro­vide the band­width needed to get house­holds on­line us­ing a grow­ing range of de­vices,” she said.

“An­other ben­e­fit of fixed wire­less ser­vices for Proser­pine and Air­lie Beach res­i­dents is that cus­tomers can bun­dle to­gether a land­line and broad­band ser­vice to get a bet­ter deal.”

Ms Cliffe said more than 1900 homes and businesses sur­round­ing Proser­pine and Air­lie Beach were el­i­gi­ble to con­nect to fixed wire­less ser­vices.
