Our Community Broadband was formed with the vision of providing super-fast broadband to communities on the Sunshine Coast who are suffering from unsatisfactory broadband provision.
Super-fast broadband is being seen by many of us as a necessary utility. We aim to inspire, support and empower these communities to establish community broadband networks, delivering improved connectivity which will transform the way their members live, work and learn.
Having already built our core infrastructure we can then add and link a new Community Distribution Point in a matter of weeks – and offer super-fast broadband at competitive prices.
Driven by a passion to connect people and communities, OCB provides affordable, fast and reliable Internet connections while donating back a percentage of profits to local community groups. Every month we will take a percentage of profits and give it back to the community, supporting groups, families and businesses that need a hand.
Better, faster service
Our network is brand new and totally separate to the internet systems you’ve been using before… this one actually works… really well!
