Businesses across the Central Coast are now able to request high-speed fibre broadband with NBN Co rolling out a new Business Fibre Initiative, as part of a $700M package to transform the accessibility and affordability of business-grade fibre.
Under the new initiative businesses at Erina, Gosford, Kincumber, Kariong, Niagara Park, Ourimbah, West Gosford and Woy Woy will be able to request the free service through their retailer.
Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks MP said the initiative will offer wholesale symmetrical speeds from 10 Mbps up to 1 Gbps upon request.
Businesses in NBN Business Fibre Zones will see Enterprise Ethernet pricing reduced, some by up to 67 per cent.
“Businesses within NBN Co’s Business Fibre Zones across the Central Coast will have access to Metro zone wholesale prices, driving annual cost savings of between $1,200 and $6,000,” Wicks said.
“During this global pandemic, the NBN has proven itself to be a vital national asset.
“It has supported all Australian businesses, including small and medium family owned businesses as they diversify and adapt to digital operating models to overcome the challenges of the pandemic.”
The additional investment into NBN Co’s Business Fibre Initiative will enable businesses to boost their digital capabilities, supporting our local business to stay competitive in the digital age,” Wicks said.
“This Initiative will create more jobs with construction of the Business Fibre Zones expected to deliver up to 6,000 new jobs across Australia, by 2021-22, including more engineers, project managers and construction crew,” she said.
