Businesses across Mount Gambier are encouraged to participate in an online roundtable to discuss an exciting update for Mount Gambier’s access to high-speed, reliable internet via the soon to be established Business Fibre Service.
To be held on October 27 at 5pm, the online forum – with Member for Barker Tony Pasin and representatives from NBNCo – will discuss the NBNCo’s plan to invest a further $6 billion nationally, including plans to establish a Business Fibre Zone in Mount Gambier together with Fibre on Demand products.
Part of a $700 million package to transform accessibility and affordability of business-grade fibre, the Business Fibre Zone will see businesses located in Mount Gambier able to request a fibre upgrade through their retailer at no upfront cost.
Mr Pasin said the NBN had proven to be a vital asset for Australians during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As we move into a digital age, it has never been more important for businesses to have access to high-speed, reliable internet,” he said.
“Giving businesses in Mount Gambier access to the Business Fibre Zone will help them to stay competitive through supporting critical applications like cloud storage and online collaboration.
“Our Government understands the importance of continued investment into Australian businesses and digital connectivity – that’s why we are making affordable ultra-fast broadband available to more businesses Australia wide.”
Call (08) 8724 7730 to register for the online Microsoft Teams event.
