National Broadband Network Update with Mackay IT Network

National Broadband Network Update with Mackay IT Network

National Broadband Network Update presented by Ryan Williams, Senior Community Affairs Manager, QLD/NSW/ACT, NBN Co.

The National Broadband Network rollout has been progressing for some time in our region, with much of the Mackay city area (south of the Pioneer River) now having access to Fibre to the Premises, and several outlying areas serviced by Fixed Wireless. However, questions always abound: when is my area being completed? What is happening north of the River? When can I get business grade services? Why do people complain that the network is slow?

Ryan Williams has been the Community Account manager for our region since the rollout commenced, and although his role with NBN Co has now broadened, he still has overall responsibility for us.

When: Thursday 15th September, 7am to 8:30am

Where: Schooners Function Room (downstairs), Ocean International Hotel

Format: Breakfast and presentation
