Seymour is set to enter a new era of fast broadband with the official switch on of the NBN access network in the region.
Six months after NBN trucks first rolled in to town, more than 3000 local homes and businesses can now experience the benefits of fast broadband via services delivered over the NBN access network.
Head of NBN local, Ebony Aitken said this is exciting news for Seymour because it means homes and businesses are now able to connect to services delivered on the NBN access network through their service provider.
‘‘Access to fast broadband is designed to provide a range of benefits such as improved opportunities to work from home, better access to online education tools and more options for on-demand entertainment,’’ she said.
‘‘Businesses will be able to improve their productivity through cloud based sharing with staff and customers as well as have increased opportunities to access new markets through e-commerce.
‘‘It’s vital that people understand that switching to an NBN powered plan is not automatic and they need to contact their preferred provider to place an order for their new internet and phone services.’’
