Everything you need to know about NBN

It’s fast, it’s reliable and it’s exciting!

It’s been the talk of the town for some time but now you can have all your questions answered at a free National Broadband Network community information session.

Greater Geraldton residents are invited to the free community information session on Tuesday, 30 Juneat the Geraldton Regional Library from 3-6pm.

As the result of some very strong lobbying from the City, Geraldton householders will be one of few communities across Australia to receive the benefit of full fibre to their premise.

This ensures lighting fast internet speeds and presents some great opportunities to those who operate home based businesses.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor, Ian Carpenter, said it was important for locals to get the information they needed regarding their network and this was the opportune time.

“Some landlines will be affected and this is the opportunity for people to learn about the future of their existing services,” he said.

“We don’t want people to be left in the dark so I would encourage all those with questions and queries about the NBN to come along so they are fully aware of future changes.”

The NBN is replacing most existing networks, so to keep using affected services, you need to move them to the NBN before they’re switched off.

Some existing landline networks for phone and internet services are scheduled to be switched off and replaced by the NBN in parts of Geraldton on July 10, 2015.

You can find out more about the NBN services at the free community information session.

It is open to all local residents and businesses. Retail service providers will be in attendance so you can drop in for a chat at any time – there is no need to make an appointment.
