Superfast broadband will be enjoyed by more than 1200 homes in Cowra and Young. It was announced that the activation of the new NBN tower was successful.
“These are terrific speeds opening up vast opportunities for rural areas in my electorate. Skype will work perfectly, you can download multiple high definition movies at the same time, and technology such as telemedicine and e-learning applications using video conferencing will also become available. There’ll be no pixilation of the image. The reliability is very solid,” he said.
NBN at Cowra, Cowra West, Koorawatha, Noonbinna and Young West towers had been switched on.
“Only a limited number of people can connect to the fixed wireless network in a given coverage area at one time, so the speed and connection remain consistent and stable, even during peak times like early evening,” he said.
“Residents or business owners who want to take next steps should visit the NBNCo website and input your exact address to check if you are in the coverage area. If you are, then ring your preferred phone company or internet service provider and ask for a technician to do a qualification test and hook you up to the service. The website takes you through the process or you can call NBNCo on 1800 687 626.”
Mr Taylor said that having the NBN rollout to the bush brings the Government back on track.
