Under the national government’s long-term plans to ensure the nation is able to compete economically in the coming decades, the locale will be the very first state to be equipped with a cable broadband network. The roll-out is expected to start in just a few weeks time.
Economists estimate that the scheme could bring hundreds of millions of dollars pouring into the area. And better still with the cables all set to be laid underground, they’ll be no telephone masts to despoil the area’s spectacular vistas. Truly, it's a scheme to envy.
In the week that the Digital Britain report is due to arrive, we can only hope our government is taking note.
