Showing what's possible - connection in remote location

In proving to be one of the leaders in innovation for leading edge telecommunications services, Primus has just announced the first business customer to be connected to the NBN in Tasmania. Primus had also previously announced the first residential customer to be connected, too.




The business customer to be connected with the 100Mbps connection is a small pharmacy located in a remote town in the northern region of Tasmania; Scottsdale. Thanks to the remoteness of this location, it adds good weight to the Government's vision of the NBN and is strongly indicative towards giving a trouble free rollout across the nation.


This excercise also puts more pressure on the Abbot coalition in trying to scrap the NBN in favour of an alternative policy.
