Everton Park’s internet speeds could be speeding up even quicker than we had hoped, with the recent announcement
that Brisbane will be receiving internet infrastructure connected to our sewage system.
The new internet infrastructure will be built by a company called i3 Asia Pacific, and is separate to the National Broadband Network (NBN) which Lord Mayor Campbell Newman said he “was not prepared to wait” for.
The infrastructure will take about 4 years to be installed, but it is great news for a lot of areas around Brisbane, especially where internet speeds are slow, or where broadband is simply non-existent.
A lot of homeowners believe that the new internet speeds will transform people’s lives, especially as internet is becoming increasingly important in business and in our day to day lives.
Apparently once the infrastructure is installed Brisbane homes and businesses will have access to 100 megabits-per-second broadband. The rollout of the new infrastructure will also come at no cost to taxpayers, and homes and businesses will have the option of whether or not they want to opt in to the new broadband.
