NBN Sky Muster Forum

A free NBN Community forum to explain NBN Sky Muster connectivity will be held at the:

Grenfell – Bowling Club
8.30am Tuesday 24 May


GrainGrowers is working with the National Broadband Network (NBN) to facilitate information forums across regional Australia ahead of the product launch of the nbn Sky Muster satellite.

Participants will be able to ask questions of nbn directly, find out how to connect and/or migrate and talk about what is possible once NBN is integrated into your property.

“The meetings are an opportunity for regional communities to find out more about the capabilities of the satellite network and also the regional Fixed Wireless Service,” GrainGrowers Chief Executive Officer Alicia Garden said.

Importantly participants can learn more about how to optimise their property’s connectivity and understand their business’ and family’s data requirements.

More information about SkyMuster and the Fixed Wireless Service can also be found at www.nbnco.com.au or from Ian Scott, 0407234859 or  [email protected]
