More than 1200 homes and businesses in the Goulburn region can connect to better internet through 36 recently completed YLess4U broadband towers. Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said YLess4U has established a strong reputation in the Goulburn region as a provider of internet solutions for rural properties and hard-to-service locations.

“YLess4U has now delivered 36 wireless broadband towers to improve internet connectivity, with 12 towers located in Collector, Gundaroo, Murrumbateman, Tarago and Wallaroo, creating six local jobs,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

“This program will provide faster and more reliable internet to 10 communities whichpreviously relied on satellite internet services.”Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said YLess4U’s network of 21new and 15 enhanced fixed wireless broadband towers was delivered as part of the NSW government’s $50 million Connecting Country Communities Fund.

“Reliable internet means residents, families and businesses can work and study from home and stay connected with loved ones easier than ever before,” Mr Toole said.

“YLess4U’s network is will soon be upgraded to provide even faster upload and downloadspeeds of 50/10 megabits per second early next year, ensuring our regional communitiescan enjoy the same level of connectivity as those in the city.
