With the changing scenario of technology importance in the development of rural India, companies have introduced optical fibre concept to reach the remotes village.Though in India is a newly introduced project but internally its a huge success bring the rural places more visible and successful.
Likewise, Federal Government has announced $5.95 million in funding for fibre optic cable to improve internet services in remote parts of Queensland.
After a decade of lobbying Governments, the Barcoo and Diamantina shires have received the guarantee they were waiting for.
Mayor of the Diamantina shire Geoff Morton said the project, to lay fibre optic cable between the two shires, would future proof the region."This will bring us from the 19th Century to the 21st Century without any figure of a doubt," Mr Morton said.
"Instead of me downloading a page in seven minutes, I will be able to download it in seven seconds."This will revolutionise the way we do things."
The enthusiasm is shared by Mayor of the Barcoo shire, Julie Groves."I cant even imagine what is going to happen," she said."Currently, just to send an email in the office it can be a couple of hours, or half a day to go from one email address to the other.
"So to have something that is going to be instant, I don’t think we appreciate what a difference it is going to make," Ms Groves said.
Federal Member for Maranoa, Bruce Scott, said the project will see technology rivalling that seen in cities, built in one of the most remote parts of Queensland."It will bring metro-equivalent internet speeds, 4G mobile phone access and an unlimited capacity of communications to the National Communications Network," he said.
