Mr Turnbull, we want Broadband, not Fraudband

We Want the NBN

There is an urgent economic and social need for better broadband in the region.

We want NBN connected to every home and business in region as a priority.

Current services are inadequate.

We say the NBN is necessary to create jobs, grow the local economy and connect communities.

    i cant believe in this day and age we cant get any form of internet. NO NBN or ADSL 1 or 2 . this is ridiculous.

    Turnbull’s solution is yet another example of short term thinking. Not taking the NBN all the way to the household is akin to the same mistakes on the M5 tunnels. Build for the future.

    Our internet services are extremely slow and the telephone lines to Port Kembla are regularlu cut off or not working. Recently many businesses were without these vital services for a whole month! this is insane – Telstra owns the lines however it appears they do not maintain their lines even though they charge for this service. It is 2016 and we pay for and expect world class services…….

    Malcolm Allison: It’s about time that our internet wiring was upgraded instead of being left the way it has been for for several years now so we can speed it up and not have to call for repairs or tolerate internet service failures so often.

    There will never ever be innovation in this country without a top quality broadband internet service. Education, Health, Big business Small business will not exist without it. Copper to the home will be like catching a bullet train to the station and then a horse and cart to the home.

    We have been putting up with inconsistent and poor ADSL internet connections for years now while trying to run a business and house my family (including high school aged grandchildren). Telstra, our ISP, tells us that our poor ADSL experience is due to our connection to a congested telephone exchange and apparently are not renewing that while the NBN is being SLOWLY rolled out. You promised connection by 2016 and there is no sign of any work towards commencement.

    We need it NOW! And not via old-fashioned copper that will need to be replaced, at vast expense. What a waste of money not doing it properly in the first place! The Liberal party – excellent at managing money for their rich corporate mates (for who else will really benefit from this pathetic interim exercise?), but useless at managing resources for the country they’re supposed to be running.

    Most of Wollongongs northern suburbs are on NBN, but where the working class live not a sign of even preliminary work commencing ie Warrawong, Lahe Heights, Berkeley, Port Kembla. Do we have to wait for the next satellite?

    Dump the failing copper network, run FTTP for a reliable network.

    Here in Robertson our only alternative to mobile broadband ( very expensive and in our case limited to 13Gb/month ) is Teltra’s offering of ADSL 1 ; that’s about as useful as dial-up, and Telstra have indicated in the past that they have no intention of upgrading our local exchange to ADSL2.

    Even if a new fibre optic installation is required all the way, the potential cable route from Bowral to Robertson ( and Burrawang and Kangaloon ) zones would be a relatively simple run along level and open roadsides and paddocks.

    Bring on the NBN…..
