IN THE wake of angry residents and businesses voicing their frustration with the NBN roll-out in recent weeks, the NBN has launched a new local team to allay community concerns in Rockhampton.

On Thursday, the NBN will hold a round-table event in Rockhampton to introduce the community relations team 'nbnTM local'.

The local team was being introduced for the designated task of improving customer experiences with the NBN, with a specific focus on Rockhampton.

Part of this focus will include "time on-the-ground" which was intended to help them understand local telecommunication needs while responding to community concerns.

This comes after statements from Rockhampton MP Michelle Landry that Rockhampton would be seeing a public forum to discuss their frustrations following the previous expressions of grievances.
