Primus, Internode and iiNet are the first internet service providers who have signed up to sell services off the back of the Tasmanian arm of the National Broadband Network from July, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy announced today.
“It’s great to see so much interest from retail service providers in offering services in Tasmania and I welcome their support for the National Broadband Network,” he said in a statement. “This shows they see compelling business opportunities in providing Tasmanians with services over the NBN.”
The news came as Conroy opened a proof of concept test centre in the state, which would allow the ISPs to test services in a live environment. “The new test centre will play a key part in supporting the overall NBN systems while a network operations centre is developed,” the statement said.
