Residents urged to register interest in connecting to Broadband

Minister for Communications Senator The Hon Helen Coonan has released the final guidelines for the Government’s $50 million Metropolitan Broadband Connect program.

The guidelines set out the rules of operation and were prepared following extensive public consultation.

The Minister has called for all interested Internet service providers to register with Metro Broadband Connect so Australians living on the fringes of our larger cities have the opportunity to connect to Broadband.

A provisional Metro Broadband Connect demand register has been established to enable customers to identify the Broadband services available to them and indicate their interest in receiving the services.

“The program will make Broadband more accessible to families, businesses and not-for-profit organisations across Pearce,” according to Member for Pearce Hon Judi Moylan MP.

“I encourage residents living in metropolitan and outer-metropolitan areas to register their interest at www.dcita.gov.au/tel.mbc,” she said.

Internet service providers interested in registering with Metro Broadband Connect should email MBC@dcita.gov.au
