THE National Broadband Network bus was in Grafton this week.

NBN spokeswoman Nichola Parker has been on the road since November and will have finished a full lap of the country by December.

"One of the great things about the NBN that people do not know, is that there will be no installation fees when people get it in their houses," she said.

Clarence Valley Mayor Richie Williamson said many of his mayoral colleagues were jealous because Grafton was the first site on the Northern Rivers to get the installation.

Member for Page Janelle Saffin could not attend the event because of commitments in Sydney.

But her policy advisor Peter Ellem said the MP had worked hard to bring the NBN to the Clarence early in the rollout.

"Janelle is a strong supporter of the NBN," he said.

"She has brought the (Communications) Minister Stephen Conroy to the area twice ... this will be transformational in how the Valley does business."
