Fibre planned for Cobar

The connection to super fast broadband to more than 2,100 homes and businesses in Cobar is about to go live as the NBN completes the rollout of fibre to the node. The Australian Government’s National Broadband Network will boost productivity and provide a platform for innovation to ensure the economic and social benefits of the internet are available to every Australian.

The development of digital technologies has reduced business costs, changed how our children study and learn, and created many more ways to engage socially. The NBN’s next generation connectivity is fast and reliable, enabling households and small businesses to be more productive and better connected for years to come.
