Houses in Camperdown and Terang will soon have access to NBN
Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan said 1609 Camperdown and 800 Terang premises will soon have access to faster and more reliable internet access, with the construction of the National Broadband Network now underway.
“The message for Camperdown and Terang residents is clear – superfast broadband is on its way,” Mr Tehan said.
“The nbn will open up a range of new opportunities for businesses, allow students to learn and engage with classmates in virtual classrooms, and make it easier for residents in Camperdown and Terang to stay in touch with family and friends online.”
Final network designs for Camperdown and Terang are now complete, meaning that over coming weeks local residents will seenbn subcontractors connecting the area with new high-speed broadband technology.
“High-speed broadband is the essential infrastructure of the twenty-first century, and the nbn will provide the platform to deliver a range of economic and social benefits to residents in Camperdown and Terang,” Mr Tehan said.
“Businesses will be more productive as the nbn enables access to new online services like cloud-based accounting software. Students will be able to participate in immersive learning experiences, from their classroom or at home. And mums and dads will be able to take care of everyday tasks like accessing government services or paying bills quickly and easily online.”
Homes and business will be connected to the nbn using fibre to the node (FTTN) technology. FTTN offers average wholesale broadband speeds of around 70 megabits per second (Mbps), with many premises able to access speeds of up to 100 Mbps. nbn will ensure that at least 90 per cent of the fixed-line footprint will have access to wholesale download speeds of 50 Mbps – allowing at least ten home devices to connect to the internet simultaneously.
The Turnbull Coalition Government is rolling out high-speed broadband across Australia in the fastest and most affordable way, with every home and business in Australia to be able to connect to the nbn by 2020.
“More than 80,000 homes and businesses across Australia are signing up to the nbn every single month, and there are already over 9,000 premises in this electorate experiencing the benefits of the nbn,” Mr Tehan said.
As nbn construction is completed over coming months in Camperdown and Terang, residents and businesses will be able to sign up to an nbn plan with their chosen retail service provider and will receive a new modem to enable high-speed broadband. A range of plans with various download quotas and speed tiers are available to suit consumer and business needs.
