Stirling set to be NBN hub

Stirling is about to become a home for a National Broadband Network (NBN) Digital Hub.
The Adelaide Hills Council is being given $350,000 from the Federal Government to set up the hub in the Stirling library, offering free demonstrations and training for the new technology.
The money is part of the second round of grants allocated from the $13.6m set aside over three years to set up hubs in 40 communities across Australia.
Onkaparinga City Council received a grant from the first round last year to set up SA’s first site at Willunga.
The program is designed to help communities to gain the skills needed to maximise the benefits provided by the NBN.
