Mission accomplished for South West’s independent NBN advisor

Friday, 21 December 2018

Thousands of businesses, not-for-profit organisations and households have been able to confidently make the switch to faster internet in the South West over the past couple of years, thanks to a free NBN advisory service.

And now that the job of assisting people make the transition to the National Broadband Network is done, South West Independent NBN Advisor Mike Hendry is hanging up his boots.

“It has been a privilege to assist businesses, community groups and not-for-profit organisations make the change to the NBN by providing people with trusted information, so they could make the best decisions for their own circumstances,” Mr Hendry said.

Since starting the position in October 2016, Mr Hendry has presented 198 public seminars to more than 3,800 attendees in the South West, as well as provided free and impartial advice to more than 500 clients.

The position was established as a partnership by the South West Development Commission, Regional Development Australia – South West, NBN, Business South West and the South West Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

SWDC acting chief executive officer Rebecca Ball said the service had been valuable to the South West community and is thankful to Mr Hendry for his dedication in delivering the important service to so many members of the community.

“We think that locals have appreciated having the opportunity to tap into this free service and receive independent advice, with the focus having been on making sure people received the best impartial information to assist them in their transition to the NBN”, Ms Ball said.

“This was all about making sure South West residents, businesses and groups received access to an independent voice they could rely on when connecting to the NBN.”
