For many people, if you’re reading this, then you’ll know that the NBN network is up and running. This afternoon technicians have been able to successfully access the Woodburn Fibre Access Node and deployed temporary infrastructure.
An nbn spokesperson says that customers across the north coast impacted by the Woodburn site outage may start to see restoration of their services this evening. ‘We will be in a position to give a detailed update tomorrow morning.
‘nbn has also deployed a satellite FlyAway Kit to the Alstonvile Leisure and Entertainment, which provides free Wi-Fi connectivity via the nbn™ Sky Muster™ satellite service. We are working closely with local authorities to deploy emergency assets to other locations as they are required
‘Support at the two evacuation centres in Ballina Southern Cross School and Ballina Sport and Recreation Centre is also ongoing.
‘Where possible, people in affected areas are encouraged to check the nbn™ outages page regularly and with their retail provider for specific information.’
