"The fixed wireless network in Upper Lachlan will consist of 43 low impact interlinked 'poles' to provide high-speed broadband services, using an innovative, low-cost and disaster-resilient design suited to local conditions," Mr Taylor said.
"I'm thrilled that residents and businesses in Upper Lachlan will enjoy the benefits and opportunities that improved digital connectivity brings.
"The project, provided by WI-SKY NSW, will allow people in this region who in the past have had very poor connectivity with access to improved broadband services and data packages."
