E-change is happening across Australia as the National Broadband Network (nbn®) is in full swing in transforming towns into tech towns. According to its Super Connected Lifestyle report, over 600 Australian lifestyle towns are expected to harness fast broadband to allow residents to work from home, minimise commute times, and increase their quality of living. Kiama (NSW), Ballarat (VIC), Toowoomba (QLD), St Helens (TAS), Victor Harbour (SA), Mandurah (WA), and Howard Springs (NT) are just some of the many potential boom towns that will benefit from this technological development.
As described in Gizmodo, the research predicts the rise of the lifestyle towns and affordable properties, which are located within a commutable distance of a capital city. The main reasons underlying this change involve lifestyle happiness and cost of living. It is worth noting that the crucial deciding factor in making this important move is the availability of access to fast and reliable Internet.
Furthermore, the said research highlights the following top reasons regarding the importance of Internet connectivity, namely: access to health services (76%), being close to friends (68%), access to leisure activities (67%), and employment opportunities (65%).
Why does it matter for SMEs?
Once the nbn® arrives in your community, the most significant improvement that everyone is expecting is faster Internet service and lesser disconnections. The nbn® aims to strengthen the economy by reducing overheads for SME’s and receive lower bills from ISPs. The implementation of the nbn® also foresees a rise in business productivity, improvement in customer service efficiency, and increase in the number of employees who are working remotely. Moreover, Cloud technologies will enable the conduct of business from wherever the owner is most convenient.
