Ask NBN ques­tions at Phoenix cen­tre

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

AN NBN in­for­ma­tion cen­tre will re­main at Phoenix Shop­ping Cen­tre un­til Satur­day to an­swer ques­tions about the lo­cal-area roll­out through Spear­wood and Bi­bra Lake.

Ac­cess in Hamil­ton Hill, Coogee, North Coogee and Mun­ster is ex­pected in the next few months.

Tel­stra Area gen­eral man­ager Boyd Brown said the ar­rival of the NBN net­work will mark the be­gin­ning of a new dig­i­tal era.

“In­di­vid­u­als, com­mu­ni­ties and busi­nesses are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly dig­i­tal-de­pen­dent and by 2021 house­holds are ex­pected to own an av­er­age of 30 con­nected smart de­vices,” he said.

“It means one of the kids will be able to stream Net­flix on the tablet while an­other watches a movie on TV, and the par­ents can be work­ing on­line on the lap­top, all at the same time with a re­li­able con­nec­tion.”

Switch­ing to the NBN net­work does not hap­pen au­to­mat­i­cally. Once avail­able, homes and busi­nesses have 18 months to con­tact their net­work provider to ar­range mov­ing across to the NBN.
