Ulmarra Newsagency pivotal in ADSL bid



ULMARRA is the latest town in the Clarence Valley to become eligible for broadband internet coverage.

Telstra announced on Thursday that the demand for the upgraded service had been met by businesses and individuals in the area.

More than 50 expressions of interest to receive the ADSL broadband internet service were made to Telstra's ADSL Demand Register, a scheme the telco uses to measure demand for the new technology.

The Ulmarra Newsagency was singled out for a special mention for encouraging interested locals to sign a petition requesting the service.

Newsagent Chris Jackson said a lot of professionals who lived in Ulmarra had been very keen to see the premium service made available to residents in the area.

Telstra stated its broadband sign up scheme will require at least 30 registrations of interest before a community will be granted access to broadband.
