NBN held a round table event in Mount Gambier to announce its regional community relations team, nbn local, on Wednesday.

nbn local will be dedicated to improving the customer experience on the NBN broadband access network across Australia, including a focus on the Limestone Coast region, where they will spend time on the ground to understand local telecommunications needs, and address community queries.

Part of the team’s role will focus on educating Limestone Coast residents and businesses about the status of the NBN access network in their area, what they need to do to connect, and what choices they have when switching over.

The rollout of the NBN broadband access network sets the scene for one of the biggest transformations to Australia’s telecommunications industry, ensuring high-speed internet.

Member for Barker, Tony Pasin MP, stated, “Over 6,600 people are connecting to NBN on a daily basis around the country.

“More than 3 million people around the country are already reaping the benefits of NBN’s next generation connectivity, which is fast and reliable, enabling households and small businesses to be more productive and better connected for years to come.

“In Barker, the fixed line rollout is 97 percent complete, with over 84,000 premises ready for service or already connected.

For those not yet connected, it’s fantastic that we now have the ‘nbn local’ team on the ground in the Limestone Coast ready to assist residents and businesses.”
