AS THE ROLL OUT OF THE NATIONAL BROADBAND NETWORK GAINS MOMENTUM, WE’RE TAKING A LOOK INTO THE LIVES AND BUSINESSES OF TELSTRA NBN™ CUSTOMERS ACROSS AUSTRALIA.

Bundaberg sits on the Burnett River, in Queensland’s Wide Bay – Burnett region, approximately four hours’ drive north of Brisbane. The vibrant city boasts access to the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef and picturesque coastal views.

Bundaberg resident Karl Horton loves living in this vibrant city even more now that the nbn™ has come to town. Karl, who lives with his girlfriend and three children, says the family can now stream and browse on their laptops, tablets and phones all at the same time.

Karl loves having the ability to stream across multiple devices – he says the kids are squabbling less – and he’s even able to watch programs he likes to watch on the Red Bull channel, meaning everyone is happy.

Take a look at Karl’s story here.

AS THE ROLL OUT OF THE NATIONAL BROADBAND NETWORK GAINS MOMENTUM, WE’RE TAKING A LOOK INTO THE LIVES AND BUSINESSES OF TELSTRA NBN™ CUSTOMERS ACROSS AUSTRALIA.

Famous for gold mining in the 1800s, Gympie is now central to the Mary River agricultural district.

Known for its variety of industries, the locality supports not only cattle and pigs, but also tropical fruit, vegetables and dairy. The region’s Mary Valley Hills also boast gorgeous national parks, perfect for activities with family and friends.

Originally from the UK, Gympie resident Nick Green loves the warmer climate of regional Queensland and was excited to be one of the first Telstra customers to connect to the nbn™ in September 2015.

As an expat, one of the biggest benefits of the nbn™ for Nick is being able to use Skype to stay connected with family overseas. He’s also now able to work more flexibly and spend more time with the kids.

Nick has also pre-registered his IT business, PC Place, for the nbn™ when it becomes available in the area; he’s looking forward to harnessing DOT to make his working hours even more flexible.

To learn more about Nick’s story, check out the video below.
