NBN is now live in Camperdown

Residents in Camperdown can now get connected to fast internet via the National Broadband Network (NBN).

Outlying areas around Camperdown have been able to access the NBN using satellite and fixed wireless technology for some time. Now township residents can now also get connected to the broadband network, using Fibre to the Node (FTTN) technology.

With Fibre to the Node, fibre optic cables deliver superfast internet to green boxes in streets around the town, which are called nodes. The existing copper line network delivers the service to the home or business.

Residents in Terang were connected to FTTN internet last week, and today it’s Camperdown’s turn. What this means is that we can now process your Telstra NBN orders in store at Gee Bees Media as a Telstra Partner.

Once your application is processed and approved you will be shipped a self-installation kit from Telstra which includes a new modem router. Following that, you will receive a connection appointment date, where a technician will attend to some wiring in the street to move your service across to NBN. When this happens there may be an outage on your service, but then you will know to plug in your self-installation kit and get connected to your new NBN connection.

While the Telstra NBN self-installation kit comes with a comprehensive set of setup instructions, our technical staff at Gee Bees Media can also assist with your NBN setup and other technical support issues in your home or business.

For more information about the NBN rollout or the range of Telstra Partner services offered from Gee Bees Media please contact Michael Pender, our Telecommunications Manager on 03 5593 2489.

Check your NBN availability on the Telstra website.

Wireless point to point installations

This week we set up another Wireless Point to Point bridge (Ethernet link) for a local dairy farmer. I thought it was a good opportunity to share some information about this service that we provide.

In this example, the client has satellite NBN terminated to their house, but also requires internet access at their rotary dairy. Dairies these days are very sophisticated, and technology is used for a variety of things including: herd management, automation, cleaning, hygiene and more.
