IN HIS first act as Australia's acting Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese switched on more than 14,000 homes to the National Broadband Network.

With the help of Coffs Harbour City Council Mayor, Cr Denise Knight, and the manager of the Coffs Coast Community College, Merren Asquith, Mr Albanese turned on access to the massive infrastructure project for homes and businesses in Boambee, Sawtell and Toormina as well as further areas of Coffs Harbour.

Mr Albanese said there are now 16,900 businesses in total across the Coffs Coast that can now connect to the NBN, with even more coming online over the next few months.

"The people of Coffs Harbour are already embracing the NBN," Mr Albanese said.

"In areas that switched on only six months ago, local households are signing up at world leading rates."
