Nagambie residents looking for faster and more reliable internet can breathe a sigh of relief, with NBN infrastructure being rolled out in the town.
Technicians have been installing the NBN infrastructure in Nagambie for the past two weeks, with work expected to be completed by February.
The NBN construction involves the installation of low-impact facilities and both above-ground housings (five cabinets and one pillar within a road reserve) and underground infrastructure (pits and conduit).
Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said she was very pleased work was progressing on upgrading the telecommunications in the area.
‘‘As we move into a more digital age, so many of our residents are working from home or remotely, where strong internet connection is crucial,’’ she said.
‘‘We need this important infrastructure as our region grows and develops. Council will also continue to advocate for the telecommunications black spot areas throughout the Strathbogie Shire.’’
Once construction is complete, NBN will make the new network available to switch on for use in a further three to six months.
