NBN Co today announced certain parts of Toowoomba now have access to the National Broadband Network (NBN), allowing locals in the switched-on area to order a super-fast broadband service as from January 24th.
“This is a great day for Toowoomba, with the live network now passing over 1,700 local homes and businesses,” NBN Co Community Account Manager, Ryan Williams said.
“Toowoomba is the second place in Queensland to be able to connect, so it presents a wonderful opportunity for the local community to be at the forefront of this new digital age. We encourage home and business owners in the switched-on area to make an early change to the NBN to be among the first in the country to experience the benefits of super-fast broadband.”
Retail prices for NBN fibre plans based on wholesale speeds up to 25/5Mbps** are comparable to existing ADSL2+ packages*** “With services delivered over the NBN you can enjoy great quality video calls, get the whole family online at once*, and download movies in minutes,” Mr Williams said.
To find out about switching to the NBN, residents and businesses can contact their preferred phone or internet service provider. A list of phone or internet service providers in each area is available at nbnco.com.au/switch or by calling 1800 OUR NBN (1800 687 626).
A team from NBN Co will also be visiting the Grand Central Shopping Centre, from Thursday the 14th to Sunday 17th of February to give locals the chance to learn about the NBN and the benefits of super-fast broadband. People will be able to come to the NBN Co Information Zone (on level one, opposite Roger David) during the centre’s opening hours to speak to an NBN representative.
