Enhanced broadband connections will provide numerous benefits to the Sunshine Coast, including increased productivity and improved sustainability.
As a member of the Broadband Today Alliance, council has helped local businesses improve their digital skills to improve digital productivity. The Get up to Speed Program, delivered with the funding from Skills Queensland and administered by council, educates local businesses about what opportunities the NBN presents. The program also provides much- needed skills and knowledge about current and emerging digital technologies.

Broadband Today Alliance
While the federal government has established a range of initiatives to provide education for Australian internet users, it is beneficial for local governments and other key stakeholders to join forces to form a common policy position on broadband issues and develop digital economy strategies and initiatives in their respective regions to help people use the NBN to its full potential.
The Broadband Today Alliance (BBTA) is a collaboration of over 120 local governments and 60 affiliate organisations that represent approximately 8 million Australians.

Through the Broadband Today Alliance, council has partnered with major regional organisations, government, industry and businesses to deliver an information portal for our region. The common goal for all partners is to provide improved broadband access to increase digital productivity on the Sunshine Coast.
