ANOTHER 200 homes and businesses in Toodyay can now order an nbn-powered plan from a phone or internet provider.
They join more than 1700 homes and businesses in parts of Toodyay, Dumbarton, Coondle and Julimar that are already able to order an nbn-powered plan from a phone or internet provider.
nbn local manager Jane McNamara said access to fast broadband was 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.
“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,’’ she said.
“It’s vital that people understand that switching to the nbn broadband access network is not automatic and they need to contact their preferred provider to place an order for their new internet and phone services.”
