MEMBERS of the Telstra Business Centre Cairns were in Mareeba last week to provide residents and businesspeople with more of an understanding of the National Broadband Network rollout which is set to be completed later this month.
It was also an opportunity for residents to sign up prior to it going live on February 22.
Mareeba’s plans to implement NBN has been in the pipeline for more than two years, and residents have had to watch on as surrounding towns and cities such as Atherton and Cairns have reaped the benefits of a new and improved comprehensive internet model.
Telstra Business Centre Cairns’ General Manager Enver Selita said the purpose of the visit was to help educate and transition business people in Mareeba over to the NBN.
“We are also offering free health checks on our customers’ Telstra accounts to ensure they are getting the most value out of their Telstra services,” he said.
Mr Selita said the response form the Mareeba community has been great.
“I think they really appreciate having someone local that can help with their NBN journey that at times can be challenging to understand,” he said.
“We have also had a great opportunity to show businesses how they can improve efficiencies using some exciting new products.”
Mr Selita said NBN currently have Mareeba going live on February 22, with the connection timeline depending on the solution.
“We urge anyone to contact our local office on 0740322288,” he said.
“We then can help over the phone or book a face to face appointment in our office at 127 Anderson Street Cairns, or onsite at their convenience.”
