Telstra NBN Info Session

Confused about the NBN and what it might mean for your phone/internet? So are we! Because of the number of questions we have had from residents about the NBN and what to do next, we have organised for two representatives from Telstra to come to the Astra this week and give us some information. Frances and Stephanie will talk to us about what the next steps for residents are, as well as answering any questions we might have. They will bring along some sample NBN-ready landline phones for us to have a look at too. If you have questions about the NBN, then this info session is for you.
