SUPER-fast internet is ramping up in Rockingham with thousands of local residents now able to connect to the NBN network for the first time, using fibre technology.

The NBN network first arrived in Rockingham in September and since then more than 5100 locals can connect across Rockingham, Shoalwater and Safety Bay.

Around 7200 additional homes and businesses in areas surrounding Rockingham, including Waikiki and Cooloongup, now have access to the NBN network’s download speeds, opening up a huge range of digital doors for local families and businesses. A further 3900 homes will have access before the end of the year.

Telstra area general manager Boyd Brown said the extension of Telstra services on the NBN network around Rockingham would give local businesses the ability to use a variety of new and emerging technologies made possible by fast and reliable broadband.

“The Rockingham area is a popular coastal community and we are seeing real pay-offs for local hospitality businesses who invest in the NBN network access for their guests,” he said.
