Council to support NBN to conduct information sessions for local businesses

Cardinia Shire Council is hosting NBN Co by running two information sessions to assist local businesses.

The informal drop-in events for businesses will run from 9am to 12pm on Tuesday 12 July at Toomah Community Centre in Pakenham and on Wednesday 13 July at the Hills Hub in Emerald. 

Businesses will have the chance to speak directly with industry professionals in a relaxed atmosphere about business connectivity, access to NBN business grade fibre, and the foundations of best practice around cyber security for businesses.  

The sessions will provide practical advice for working with internet service providers and ensuring that businesses receive the best plan and service possible to optimise and future-proof their business.  

NBN Independent Business Advisors will also be there to help businesses select the best supplier for their needs and location.
