Telco is to unveil a new broadband solution later today. The “new national broadband solution” called Telstra Digital Business is designed for small businesses.
The solution will be an “affordable and easy to use communication system” and will give SMBs the same fast internet enjoyed by big business, Telstra claims.
This latest bid encouraging business to make the “digital switch” comes in light of the NBN test phase, in which the telco is to take part.
Further details will be available later this morning after the announcement by Telstra CEO, David Thodey, and Federal Minister for Small Business, Nick Sherry.
It will be available for one million small businesses currently in Australia.
This news also comes as Telstra has been given a 90-day extension of its deadline to submit a plan to separate its retail and wholesale arms just last week, as it examines the fine print of the $11bn deal to migrate to the National Broadband Network .
However, reports this morning indicate David Thodey and NBN Chief, Mike Quigley, have held increasingly in-depth talks with their legal teams over the final terms of the deal, with an announcement before the end of May on the cards.
