Kuringgai Net offers families, community organisations and businesses free specialised advice in all computing areas as well as provide you with the hardware and software, installation and training with ongoing support through the Help Desk. 

This new addition to the site has come about by listening to many local residents who feel and I think it's true, that sound and trustworthy computing advice along with prompt backup support when there are problems, is not readily available.  As a primary aim of Kuringgai Net is to put Ku-ring-gai online, I have no hesitation in introducing this new service for the local community.  

I've called this service an "Internet Service" rather than a computing service, because it's clear now that the Internet embraces virtually every aspect of our lives, and a "mere" computer is simply one component that at this point in hardware development gives us access to the Internet.  The Internet has changed for all time the way we do things - how we shop, how we learn and research, and find information about products and services and how we access those products and services, and how these products and services are created and delivered.  But that doesn't mean that we desert our local communities. 

It is all the more important to understand what a "local community" is and how it functions.  "Community" as such requires a new definition, a new meaning without sacrificing the uniqueness of our specific geographical and socio-economic area. This offcourse applies to all  "places". There are several articles on Kuringgai Net which address this issue. 

Computers simply help us simplify the many daily tasks we have before in our busy lives.  Whether these tasks involve helping children use the Internet for school work, running community groups efficiently or using effective solutions to assist small businesses.

At present four packages are available:
Family, Community Organisation, Small Business and Restaurant.
