NBN expands on the Gold Coast

Tens of thousands more locals on the Gold Coast can now access super-fast internet with a major expansion of NBN in the region.

The NBN will be available to a further 26,800 homes and businesses in the Gold Coast region by next month, bringing the total number of premises able to connect to the network to 63,100.

Telstra Area General Manager, Darren Clark, said the general feedback from customers on the NBN was that they were enjoying faster speeds and could do more online with less buffering.

“The arrival of superfast broadband is great news for the Gold Coast community and helps to keep locals at the forefront of technology in Australia.”

Mr Clark said the arrival of the NBN would help locals continue to stream more content across a myriad of different devices.

“The streaming video revolution is accelerating demand for fast, reliable connectivity. With the NBN, local households can enjoy their favourite shows, sports and movies over the internet with less buffering and fewer interruptions.

“It means one of the kids can stream Netflix on the tablet while another watches a movie on the TV and the parents can be working online on the laptop, all at the same time with a reliable connection.”

Propaganda at its best… Unless the NBN is FTTH then its no better than cable with both being a shared media. Except NBN is reliant on copper wire from the street to your home which has limited bandwidth. So for those who have very poor existing connections then maybe they will notice a difference. The rest good luck, especially on rainy days and weekends etc when everyone is home using the Internet and we all see what happens to the M1 when everyone gets on it at once. Oh! don’t forget that your so called phone service is now reliant on power connection so if the power goes out and its an emergency, your on your own. Also the majority of users already connected to the failing infrastructure project have and continue to report constant dropouts and loss of services for sometime weeks and days. So to all the Gold Coasters now on NBN, enjoy! Thanks Mr Turnball for giving us Australians such a great communications network, and placing us at the bottom of the scale when comparing to other poorer countries who have to put up with far superior services. It has been noted that New York cabbies refer to traffic issues as being as slow as the Australian Internet. It’s with these milestones that makes you proud to be Australian…..

Oh wouldn’t that be nice… We can’t get ADSL2 , so I can’t see the NBN being available in the near future. I think someone is telling PORKIE PIES!!
