Community Meeting
Proposed Fibre Broadband Network

Wamboin Community Hall, 7.00pm

The Wamboin Communications Action Group (WCAG) has been working over the last year to identify options to deliver a better broadband network for our community in the Wamboin, Bywong and Sutton region. Our efforts here picked up pace once it became clear that, notwithstanding our proximity to Canberra, we were being relegated to the poorest NBN option – the Satellite based SkyMuster service. You can find more details about this and the background to the group at our web site at https://sites.google.com/site/wamboincommunications/home.

A few months ago we commenced discussions with a commercial party to investigate the potential of building a local Fibre based network - with fibre connection to the Internet delivered right to your home or business! Significant progress has now been made and we would like to share with local residents the detail – including timing, speeds, data allowances and costs. With your support the answers you’ll hear to these are .... 2018, very fast, lots and comparable .... in that order.

At the meeting you’ll get to hear from members of the Action Group with a detailed presentation on the proposed network being delivered by our possible network builder and operator, followed by a Q&A session.

We do need your support to make this a success, so join us at the Wamboin Community Hall from 7.00pm to learn what is being proposed and what you have to gain by being an early participant.

Wamboin Community Christmas Carols

The annual Christmas carols sing along at the Wamboin Community Hall, commencing at 7.00 pm, with an appearance by the jolly gentleman in red himself! The 'formal proceedings' will be followed, as is the tradition, with a sausage sizzle for all the family. All welcome, young and old, with proceeds to the Salvation Army.

As is also the tradition, there will be a Giving Tree, for Christmas gifts and non-perishable food also to be distributed by the Salvation Army. Cuddly toys are nice, but spare a thought also for those who are often overlooked: mums and adolescents. The most convenient presentation is a Christmas bag, rather than wrapping paper, as all gifts have to be checked before passing them on.
