Business Communications - Will you be the Disruptor..... or Disrupted??

NBN Rollout... Your Business Obligations to avoid Disruption

Australian Businesses will be affected by the significant changes happening in communications technology when transitioning to the National Broadband Network (NBN) and the impending forced disconnection of ISDN.
You need to take action or face the ultimate disruption – disconnection of your business services!

In this breakfast session we will discuss the NBN rollout, the significant benefits NBN can bring to your business, and the good news that is often overshadowed by the horror stories of migrations gone wrong.

We will cover what you need to know and do, to get the best NBN experience avoiding the pitfalls along the way.

Time-frames and key dates are also a critical part to this session as there is a hard cut-off date for special business services and your business will be disconnected unless you act within the time-frames.

Join us as we address what will the forced disconnection of ISDN mean for your business?

The myths and fake news answering common questions....... 
  • Can I keep my existing phone system?
  • Can I keep my existing phone numbers? 
  • Will there be a service disruption to my business?

The alternative options to replace ISDN
  • Leap frog existing technology
  • Gain better functionality
  • Lower your communications costs!
You need to act now, to ensure your business will survive the NBN rollout!
