Federal Member for Indi Cathy McGowan is encouraging residents with questions about the delivery of NBN services to meet with staff when the NBN roadshow visits Indi communities during February.
The roadshow, which will tour the north east, will visit Benalla on Thursday, February23.
NBN wants to speak with residents about the rollout of the network and provide information about what householders and business owners should consider before they sign up to a plan with their phone or internet provider.
The roadshow includes a custom-made Sky Muster truck, which carries a portable satellite antenna and aims to replicate the speeds and experience people can expect when accessing the NBN via a wi-fi hotspot.
Ms McGowan said the roadshow would engage with north east residents in locations where the NBN was now live or close to going live.
‘‘This is an opportunity to ask questions before signing up to an NBN plan and understand exactly how this new technology can deliver improved telecommunications in rural and regional areas,’’ Ms McGowan said.
‘‘The government has rejected a recommendation from the parliamentary inquiry into the delivery of the NBN to establish a committee to examine problems with the rollout in rural and regional Australia.
‘‘In taking its roadshow to the regions, NBN is seeking to speak with people and understand their questions and issues.’’
