Lockhart River will soon gain a new fibre optic network, providing reliable internet and communications connectivity.
The new network replaces the existing above ground radio wave system, which is unstable and susceptible to failure in severe weather and prone to vermin damage. It will connect Council Chambers to a number of other council buildings and facilities across the community, as well as connecting to the newly available NBN, and will allow council and other community service providers to effectively deliver services for the community.
