Lockyer residents to enjoy benefits of NBN

LOCKYER Valley residents will be among the first to take advantage of the National Broadband Network with a free Federal Government training program set to launch in the region.

The Lockyer Valley Regional Council will receive $400,102 to operate a digital hub while training group HB Recruitment and Training will receive $265,000 for a digital enterprise.

The Digital Hub and Enterprise will deliver NBN training to the community and businesses.

HB Recruitment and Training training manager Jill Keen said the NBN would change the way people do business.

"Utilising new technology will allow businesses to make improvements to their productivity," she said.

Labor senator Mark Furner said the programs would provide valuable training for residents.

"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," he said.
