St Helens Information night – 15 Jan – Tidal Waters Resort


After discussions with Kathie Davies (Vice President of the St Helens Chamber of Commerce), it is clear that there is a lot of confusion surrounding the NBN Transition particularly for small businesses. We have decided to hold an information night in St Helens. We will be advertising this on Star FM. If you run a small business you will get a lot out of the evening. This especially true if you have already decided which company you are going to transition with.

Update 13/01/14: Unfortunately our St Helens event is now full. If you would like to be notified of future events please sign up for our newsletter on the right. I am also available for one-on-one meetings where I can discuss your particular situation – call (0418217582) orĀ email me

NBN installs delayed – due to lack of staff


NBNCo have informed us that they have put two of our NBN installations in Deloraine on hold because “they don’t have enough staff in Tasmania”. These were installs due on the 2nd and 3rd January. We have no new installation dates for these clients.

We have several more installations due to occur next week (the week of 6th January), we have not heard about these, but we can expect these to be delayed as well.

This is of concern because we are still 5 months out from the switchoff deadline in Deloraine (23 May) and we expect the volume of new installs to increase as we approach this deadline.

My strong recommendation to clients is to at least order an NBN connection (without a contract) from any provider to get the NBN Box (NTD) installed.
