Telstra’s NBN commercial broadband service has just been launched in Triabunna and Sorell, areas of southern Tasmania.

The telco National Broadband Network service boasts downstream speeds “up to” 25Mbps or 100Mbps, depending on the plan.

Prices start at $80 per month for 5GB of data, while higher tier 100Mbps plans will set Tasmanians back $100 for 200GB.

Tasmania is one of the first states to get NBN services.

But that’s not the only thing Telstra is rolling out.

It has also unleashed a new ‘Store on Wheels’ in Triabunna to get geared up for customer demand for high speed Internet.

The ‘Store on Wheels’ is “a new retail concept for Telstra and the first of its kind in Australia.”

“The mobile store is permanently based in Tasmania means we can be in more places for customers to talk to us in person, supplementing our local 25-plus store network,” says Michael Patterson, Telstra area general manager for Tasmania.

“With our Store on Wheels we’re…providing face to face service in smaller communities where we don’t have a retail presence.”

“Customers will have a lot of questions about their services on the NBN and so they don’t have to travel to talk to us, we’re rolling this new store right into the heart of NBN enabled areas.”
