High-speed, fixed-wireless broadband planned for Northern Rivers

The company building Australia’s National Broadband Network, NBN Co, has begun outlining plans to provide some smaller communities and rural residents in parts of the Northern Rivers with facilities dedicated to delivering high-speed, fixed-wireless broadband services.

NBN Co has started discussions with councils and a range of interest groups, and plans to start consultation beginning with community information sessions for Lismore, Ballina and Tweed Shire areas between February 25 and 27. Details of times and locations will be advertised shortly.

Plans are currently being finalised for fixed-wireless facilities in seven council areas:

  • Ballina Shire
  • Byron Shire
  • Clarence Valley Shire
  • Kyogle Council
  • City of Lismore
  • Richmond Valley Council
  • Tweed Shire.
