NBN is due to ‘go live’ in Keith and Millicent in March this year, while Mount Gambier should see another 14,500 premises gaining access by June.
Superfast broadband has already arrived for more residents in in the South East as the NBN continues to make services available to a further 2,600 homes and businesses.
Member for Barker Tony Pasin said residents in these areas should take full advantage of the opportunities available in Australia’s new high-speed broadband era.
The NBN’s next generation connectivity is fast and reliable, enabling households and small businesses to be more productive and better connected for years to come.
Mr Pasin said the rollout in Barker was gathering pace thanks to NBN’s simplified network construction and the company’s strong relationship with local contractors.
In total, 26,300 premises in the South East will be given access to a fixed line NBN service this year which will complete the rollout in the region which already has fixed wireless and satellite services.
