Hobart has responded well to the introduction of access to fast broadband services over the nbn™ broadband access network with many businesses already realising many of the benefits.

Local businesses that have connected to the nbn™ access network are more easily engaging global markets and increasing their competitiveness.

Recently the Regional Australia Institute partnered with nbn™ and TasICT to present the findings of the report to local businesses at a breakfast event.

Presented by Regional Australia Institute CEO, Jack Archer, The National Broadband Network could create hundreds of new businesses between now and 2021, according to a new report. The report suggested access to fast broadband could be “an attractant for new industries and businesses to the city”.

“Over the next three years it is projected that up to 600 additional businesses and up to 8000 additional digital jobs could be a direct result of access to services over the NBN access network,” the report stated.
