More than 2300 homes and businesses in parts of Maryborough, Flagstaff and Carisbrook can now switch over to the National Broadband Network (NBN).
They join 2000 homes and businesses in parts of Maryborough that have been able to connect to the network since January this year.
Head of NBN local Victoria and Tasmania, Ebony Aitken, said people living in parts of Maryborough, Flagstaff and Carisbrook can now connect to a plan over the NBN access network.
“This is great news for local households and businesses. Connecting to a plan through your preferred phone and internet provider means the whole house can enjoy access to the benefits of fast internet such as on-demand entertainment options, access to online learning tools and the ability to work remotely,” she said.
“For the first time local residents also have a choice of speeds when selecting a broadband package — people should ask their phone and internet provider about the actual speeds they can expect to experience when they switch to a plan over the NBN access network, particularly during peak times.”
