New Data Centre for Dubbo
The data centre will help lead the way for faster, more reliable & cheaper internet access. Dubbo will now be able to access direct cloud connectivity rather than connecting through traditional internet links.
“In terms of setting up our region for success, this is a key piece of essential infrastructure.”
