NBN now avail­able for more than 1000 prop­er­ties in the Kiewa Val­ley

Myrtleford Times - - News -

UP­PER Kiewa Val­ley res­i­dents can now place an or­der through their pre­ferred phone and in­ter­net provider, for a plan over the NBN ac­cess net­work.

Over 1,100 homes and busi­nesses in Mt Beauty and Ta­wonga South join more than 400 premises on the out­skirts of both towns which have been able to take ad­van­tage of ser­vices over NBN’s fixed wire­less tech­nol­ogy since 2016.

Head of NBN lo­cal Vic­to­ria and Tas­ma­nia Ebony Aitken said peo­ple in parts of Mt Beauty and Ta­wonga South can now con­nect to a plan by con­tact­ing their pre­ferred phone and in­ter­net provider to dis­cuss their in­ter­net us­age and de­ter­mine a pack­age that suits their needs.

“Con­nect­ing to a plan through your pre­ferred phone and in­ter­net provider means the whole house can en­joy ac­cess to the ben­e­fits of fast in­ter­net such as on-de­mand en­ter­tain­ment op­tions, ac­cess to on­line learn­ing tools and the abil­ity to work re­motely,” she said.

“For the first time lo­cal res­i­dents also have a choice of speeds when se­lect­ing a broad­band pack­age – peo­ple should ask their phone and in­ter­net provider about the ac­tual speeds they can ex­pect to ex­pe­ri­ence when they switch to a plan over the NBN ac­cess net­work, par- tic­u­larly dur­ing peak times.

“It’s im­por­tant to re­mem­ber that mak­ing the switch is not au­to­matic, to con­tinue us­ing your land­line and in­ter­net ser­vices, you’ll need to con­tact your pre­ferred phone and in­ter­net provider to place an or­der.”

More than 1.4 mil­lion homes and busi­nesses in parts of Vic- to­ria are ready to con­nect to the NBN and en­joy the ben­e­fits of ac­cess to fast broad­band.

There are more than 150 phone and in­ter­net providers that sell re­tail plans over the NBN ac­cess net­work.
