Connecting the community in Ballarat

The NBN Connect Roadshow comes to town to showcase the benefits of fast broadband

Residents of Ballarat have the opportunity to learn more about the national broadband network and the many benefits that access to the NBN can offer homes and businesses, as the Connect Roadshow comes to town.

Located at Bridge Mall Shopping Centre until 2 April 2015, the Connect Roadshow is in town to generate awareness about the availability of the NBN in Ballarat and the wider region.

It features NBN Co experts available to answer community questions and an enormous ‘NBN’ letter sculpture that local artists and school students are invited to paint to visually express what the NBN means to the local community.

Yellow Espresso Café on Sturt Street is also offering free Wi-Fi, powered by NBN, to their customers from 24 March to 17 April 2015.

Residents of Ballarat can come along and experience the benefits of fast broadband services over the NBN on their smartphone, tablet or laptop whilst enjoying a free coffee from the café.

Throughout the week the Connect Roadshow team will also host information sessions specially designed for families and seniors to help them connect to services over the network and understand how they can start experiencing its many benefits.

Several phone and internet service providers will also have marquees set up beside the NBN Co stand to help residents choose the right NBN plan for their household or business needs.

 

Local residents can find out whether they are eligible to connect to services over the NBN.
