Woy Woy to get access to 'premium grade' fibre internet

Woy Woy businesses north of Dunban and McMasters Rds have been included in a "business fibre zone", which will allow them access to internet speeds of up to 952 megabits per second.

The area extends south of McMasters Rd, between Ocean Beach Rd and Trafalgar Ave as far as Gallipoli Ave, to include the Alma Ave light industrial area, Woy Woy South Public School and the council works depot.

The business fibre zones were announced by NBN Co on September 22 as part of its Corporate Plan 2021.

"NBN Co will invest up to $700 million in a multi-faceted package of initiatives over the next three years to support business innovation," the company stated in a media release on September 23.

"The centerpiece of this package is the creation of up to 240 business fibre zones nationally.

"All businesses within these zones will have access to NBN's wholesale premium-grade business offering, with wholesale prices for service providers significantly reduced, in some cases by up to 67 per cent."

Other zones announced on the Coast are centred around Kincumber, Terrigal and Ourimbah.

Federal Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks said businesses within these fibre zones will have access to metro zone wholesale prices.

"This [will] drive annual cost savings of between $1200 and $6000," Ms Wicks said.

Ms Wicks also said it would enable businesses to boost their digital capabilities and help them stay competitive in the digital age, and its construction would create new jobs, including for engineers, project managers and construction crew.
