“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.”
