Are you on the map for superfast broadband? 26.11.14

THE Western Development Commission has welcomed the publication of online maps outlining where next generation broadband will be available across the country.
The WDC said public consultation on the maps was "an important step in ensuring rolling out of next generation broadband to everyone and reducing the digital divide between urban and rural". It said it had been highlighting the need for superfast broadband for years.
“We all know how important quality broadband is for both businesses and consumers. Many parts of the western region are struggling with slow broadband speeds,” said WDC policy analyst Deirdre Frost.
