The federal government is giving $639,300 to Adelaide City Council to supply NBN training services.
The NBN Digital Hub and Enterprise offers locals, SMBs and non-for-profit organisations free expert advice on how to make the most out of the NBN.
"The free training gives local people access to expert advice in understanding the possibilities of the NBN, while helping businesses create the jobs of the future and compete nationally and globally," Federal Member for Adelaide, Kate Ellis, said in a statement.
Acting Communications Minister, Kim Carr, said construction of the NBN fibre network was ramping up across South Australia. So far, 34,700 homes and businesses across the suburbs of Prospect, Modbury and Stirling. Work is also underway for a further 34,900 premises in the state.
“By June 2015, fibre construction will have commenced or been completed for more than 327,000 premises across the state, including 91,800 premises in the Adelaide region alone," Senator Carr said.
The Digital Hub and Enterprise program is being delivered in 44 communities throughout the country where work on the rollout of the NBN has already commenced.
