Local Businesses Getting Ready for the NBN Express

With the National Broadband Network (NBN) on the horizon, it will be essential for local businesses to be able to participate in the digital economy in order to succeed – and now a program is available to help Sunshine Coast businesses get up to speed.

A new 12-week course offered at minimal cost will help local businesses – particularly micro to small businesses – leap into the digital age and give them a sound footing on which to succeed, Sunshine Coast Council’s Broadband and Digital Economy Manager, Michael Whereat, said.

“This program is being hosted by – which was inspired by Sunshine Coast Council – with funding from Skills Queensland,” he said.

“The course cost is $250, but participants will be able to claim $175 back, as long as they purchase a PC, laptop or tablet.”

Mr Whereat said the mainly-online program is flexible to suit time-poor business operators, and offers accreditation towards further study.    

“Here on the Coast we are more NBN-ready than most, but we want to ensure that all in our business community are also ready to quickly pick up on the new fast broadband service and build our reputation as an ideal place to do business,” he said.

The program features one live event, along with weekly webinars, access to a private Facebook group, and mentors will be available.

“This program will prove very popular and is available across many parts of the state, so my advice is to register as quickly as you can,” Mr Whereat said.

For more information visit or – or attend a no-obligation upcoming information evening (5.30 to 8pm) on the Sunshine Coast on Tuesday 27 March to be held at Maroochydore Library.
