NBN guide for Central West

A new Telecommunications Infrastructure Support Guide explaining the NBN rollout and Mobile Black Spot Program was recently launched.

The Support Guide has been specifically designed to assist businesses and community groups to better understand how they might be affected by telecommunications infrastructure roll-outs planned for the region and, importantly, how they might contribute to the development of telecommunications infrastructure.

The Guide also encourages business and community groups that can contribute information to Mobile Network Operators to help rectify mobile black spots.
