I was excited to be at the Gungahlin Library this morning for testing of the ACT’s first public connection to the NBN. The Library forms part of the Gungahlin Digital Hub where residents will be able to learn more about how to access the exciting features of the NBN. Free training sessions will be available from early next year and will cover a range of computer basics, everyday online activities, and online safety and security, and connection options.
Senator Kate Lundy encouraged local businesses to imagine the possibilities of their future activities in a super-connected city like Canberra. She encouraged them to think creatively and strategically about the opportunities available to them through the NBN. By mid-2015, fibre construction will have commenced or be completed to 135,300 homes and businesses across the ACT beginning with the whole of Gungahlin Town Centre going live in January 2013.
