East Fremantle families and businesses can now switch to the nbn™ broadband access network

More than 3,000 homes and businesses within the Town of East Fremantle can now order an nbn ™ powered plan from a phone or internet provider.
 
nbn local manager, Rachael McIntyre said:
 
“This is exciting news for East Fremantle as it means that homes and businesses are now able to order an nbn™ powered plan from their preferred phone or internet provider.”
 
“The community will join more than 6.4 million other premises across Australia that are currently able to enjoy the benefits of the nbn™ network, with more than 700,000 of these in Western Australia.
 
“Access to fast broadband is designed to provide a range of benefits such as improved opportunities to work from home, better access to online education tools and more options for on-demand entertainment.
 
“Businesses will be able to improve their productivity through cloud based sharing with staff and customers as well as have increased opportunities to access new markets through e-commerce.
 
“It’s vital that people understand that switching to the nbn™ network is not automatic and they need to contact their preferred provider to place an order for their new internet and phone services.”
