High-Speed NBN in Mt Barker, Murray Bridge & Victor Habor


High speed NBN has launched for businesses in Murray Bridge, Mt Barker and Victor Harbor.

NBN Co’s Business Fibre Initiative is part of a $700 million package to transform the accessibility and affordability of business-grade fibre.

Under the new initiative, organisations in the Business Fibre Zone will be able to request a fibre upgrade through their retailer at no upfront cost.

The initiative will offer wholesale symmetrical speeds from 10 Mbps up to 1 Gbps on request.

Member for Barker Tony Pasin, who is also Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on the National Broadband Network, said the Government is backing this investment into small and medium businesses, which will be critical to the region's economic recovery from COVID-19.

“During this global health crisis, the NBN has proven itself to be a vital national asset. It has supported Australian businesses as they have innovated and adapted to digital operating models to overcome the challenges of the pandemic,” Mr Pasin said.   

NBN Co will allocate $50 million to help expand these Business Fibre Zones by co-investing with Local Councils and State Governments.
