That NBN Thing: Questions & Answers

That NBN Thing: questions & answers on 22 JulyA talk and public discussion about the National Broadband Network (NBN).

Alun Davies will help to demystify the NBN and explain why it matters for both individuals and businesses in regional Australia.

Davies will delve into the science and technology – and more. Topics will include: the NBN explained – FTTP, FTTN, fixed wireless and Sky Muster Satellite; cloud computing, 3D printers and robotics; building a digital economy and what regional areas can do to take advantage of digital disruption technologies.

The discussion will include plenty of time to answer your questions. (Which can be anything from “what exactly are digital disruption technologies” to “why do I get good internet and my neighbour doesn’t”.)

When: 7pm, Friday 22 July 2016. The event should go for about 90 minutes.

Where: James Theatre, Brown St Dungog.
