Parkes was recently named as one of 240 business fibre zone locations offering NBN Co’s premium business-grade fibre to more than 700 local Parkes businesses at the same wholesale price as capital cities centers.
Last Wednesday NBN Co-presented this opportunity to Parkes Chamber of Commerce members to help local businesses make the most of the new offering.
Enterprise Ethernet, as the new fibre is called, is NBN Co’s fastest symmetrical wholesale product and has options for prioritised traffic, high capacity and symmetrical upload and download wholesale speeds from 10Mbps to close to 1Gbps1, as well as enhanced 24/7 support.
NBN Local General Manager, Chris Cusack, said: “An estimated 717 Parkes businesses will have access to fast and reliable connectivity at a time when reliance on driving online presence, digital collaboration platforms and cloud-based tools has never been more significant for businesses.
“Meeting with the Parkes Chamber of Commerce is part of NBN Co’s ongoing commitment to educate communities and ensure local businesses are aware of the solutions available for continued resilience and growth.”
Parkes Business Chamber President, Geoff Rice, said the launch of the Business Fibre Initiative was an exciting investment for Parkes, provided a competitive edge for businesses looking to relocate, while also helping support local business innovation and competition into the digital age.
