ONLINE: Port Lincoln residents Harold and Patricia Rabski said they were looking forward to greater internet connection.LOWER Eyre Peninsula residents are encouraged to do some research in getting connected to the National Broadband Network (NBN) to ensure they were getting the best deal.
A number of areas across the Lower Eyre Peninsula have already gone live with the NBN with more to happen over the next two years.
Most recently areas including Coffin Bay and Wangary while work has commenced for areas including Cummins and Wanilla, which should go live soon.
Aussie Broadband Business reseller manager Chris Merchant said the NBN would bring great relief for people in areas that have struggled with slow internet speeds.
“I’m quite familiar with the area (Lower Eyre) and the challenges the area has gone through to get decent broadband,” he said.
“It delivers up to 50 megabits of broadband service, which is considered faster than what the average customer in Port Lincoln township on ADSL technology.”
However Mr Merchant said there’s a lot people should do if they’re preparing to get connected to the NBN.
This includes comparing internet service providers and comparing monthly charges and speeds provided. He said people should also talk to people whoalready have the service.
Different areas will have connection to one of three services; fixed wireless, fibre or satellite.
Lincoln Computer Centre managing director Greg Williams said he received daily NBN queries and encouraged people to learn about what’s available to them.
“Do some research on what’s available in the area, find out what’s available at their premises and at what point,” he said.
“For example if you’ve got a home at Farm Beach then satellite is your only option, while if you’ve got a home at Little Douglas, just south of Farm Beach, you can get fixed wireless.”
Meanwhile Port Lincoln resident Harold Rabski said it would be good to get connected once it becomes available in his area.
“Technology is necessary in today’s age and if you’ve got it, you use it,” he said.
