Gigatown moves into a new gear, as Nelson reaches finals

Nelson is one step closer to a superfast internet connection for us all thanks to hard working team


 The first round of #gigatown is now done and dusted and all scores are reset to zero and the top 5 towns now start again on a level playing field. It is very exciting for Nelson to be one of those top 5 towns - but now the hard work really needs to happen!

We will post a couple of how to guides over the coming days on how we can all band together and get onboard the #gigatownnsn train and work towards bringing ultrafast broadband to our doors.

Whenever you see the Bowater Honda Gigatown Nelson CR-V out and about be sure to snap a photo to upload, and take a few moments to talk to the Gigatown Crew about how you can help. It does not require much, just a little from alot!

The Nelson Mail, our local paper, is even giving column centimetres to this remarkable effort, an effort that has been making progress due to the tireless battling away by a dedicated team of locals, and a few businesses like Bowater Motor Group, and Bowater Honda in particular.
