1,341 businesses in the Hume electorate will benefit from cheaper and faster broadband with NBN Co announcing the establishment of a Business Fibre Zone at Camden today.
Federal Member for Hume, the Hon Angus Taylor MP, said the new Zone will allow local businesses to access fibre with speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second, enabling a range of new business opportunities that previously weren’t possible.
“This has the potential to revitalise and reshape our region,” Mr Taylor said.
“Access to high-speed internet will allow local businesses to grow and thrive, break into new markets, and secure our long-term growth potential.
“With no upfront build costs and discounts of up to 60 per cent on NBN Co’s current wholesale plans, I am keen to see local businesses in Camden and Narellan take advantage of these zones.”
Today’s announcement will support an additional 60,000 eligible businesses across Australia, taking the total number of businesses within a Business Fibre Zone to 850,000, of which nearly 300,000 businesses are in regional Australia. NBN’s Enterprise Ethernet, NBN Co’s fastest symmetrical wholesale product offers these businesses plans of up to 1 Gigabit per second at the same price as CBD areas.
This extension to NBN Co’s Business Fibre Zone initiative builds on the $700 million package announced last year to transform the accessibility and affordability of business-grade fibre and allow small to medium businesses to embrace opportunities for growth.
