How has the NBN impacted on the way you do business?

NBN currently has not impacted greatly on us as we are only very recently connected one of three offices (upgraded from ADSL2+). When all offices are connected we are anticipating improvements in speed and performance of our Virtual Private Network (VPN), VOIP and cloud file storage.

We also run video conference links between the farm and our external stakeholders, including students and members of the community.

Do you see any opportunities into the future for your business as a result of the NBN?

Essentially we see NBN as a means to support our strategy to better utilise cloud services and thus reduce internal infrastructure costs while increasing our ability to operate seamlessly from different geographical locations.Additionally we also see as a means to better support our communication requirements eg email, VOIP and video conferencing.

Are there any other ways we can help grow your business and to build Armidale's future Digital Economy?

Support affordable and local IT support services and ensure the NBN remains affordable.
