Over the coming months NBN Co and its design and construction partners will work with the Bega Valley Shire Council, to identify appropriate locations for fixed wireless network infrastructure in the area.
Member for Eden-Monaro Peter Hendy said: “I welcome today’s announcement by NBN Co regarding a fixed wireless network rollout in the New South Wales South Coast region.”
Subject to final planning and other approvals, NBN Co expects facilities to be switched on in stages starting in mid-2015. This will deliver access to fast broadband via its fixed wireless network.
“I am very pleased to note that this much needed infrastructure will offer retail service providers download speeds of up to 25 megabits per second. This is good news for the South Coast,” Dr Hendy said.
