Mr Turnbull, we want Broadband, not Fraudband

We Want the NBN

We want NBN fibre connected to every home and business in Throsby, with the suburbs of the Southern Highlands and Southern Illawarra (Albion Park / Albion Park Rail / Oak Flats) as a priority.

These areas have inadequate and/or limited access to broadband and are at a significant disadvantaged compared to other parts of the region.

We say the NBN is necessary to:

  1. Enable our businesses to take advantage of the economic opportunities of high-speed broadband;
  2. Provide our job seekers with the ability to use the Internet to search for local employment;
  3. Provide our students with the technology necessary to give them the best possible education.

    We need this now, the Telstra line is really bad it drops out all the time. We are paying for services across that connection and it is always failing. We need this now.

    Please get NBN or atleast an upgrade to exchange so we can get a decent speed from adsl. Being less then 1 k from exchange I get 4mbps..that’s not acceptable. Used to get 20mbps untill last year, if it’s congestion please get a upgrade.

    The Yellow Rock community have been suffering with dial-up internet speeds for more than 10 years now. The problem is that Yellow Rock is far away from the Albion park Rail ADSL exchange, which results in us having poor internet connections. It would be fantastic if Yellow Rock could get NBN by the end of this year . To see that Tullimbar is starting to get NBN installed is great, which would only make sense that Yellow Rock gets NBN as well because we are less than 1km away from Tullimbar.

    Running a small business from home in Albion park is difficult when the rubbish “adsl2” connection (which is far slower and more expensive than adsl2+ Service I had living in wollongong) constantly drops out.

    I am an IT professional on an ADSL1 link. I work from home now and then, but it is difficult as my speeds restrict me from being productive.

    NBN rollout stopped for existing Haywards Bay residents. Due to liberal government change of policy. Only new houses are receiving NBN fibre to the premises. This has neglected existing residents currently running on 3rd world ADSL1 speeds. Even though the fibre cable has been rolled out in our streets.

    Please help our residents to ensure we all have the same opportunities to make a living.

    Complete our rollout as per the original planned schedule.

    Regards a frustrated tax payer.

    The internet is so slow I’ve had trouble booking plane flights as the time limit to book runs out.

    We have residents with such poor internet service and are unable to operate their home based businesses. Families with children attending school struggle to complete their course work as a result of no NBN also. We want NBN and we need it now throughout the whole of Haywards Bay

    As an employee in a local business that distributes internet services I have a first hand perspective on the inadequacy of the connection quality and density in the albion park/oak flats/shellharbour areas. This is an issue that must be addressed now in order to bring these areas into line with reasonable expectations of the quality of the internet service one can recieve.

    With the majority government funded secondary schools in the area moving to 5ghz wireless standards how can it be justified that upstream infrastructure remains so woefully inadequate?

    The NBN rollout is something that needed to be initiated in the area yesterday, as such it is imperative that the work begins asap to overcome these issues.

    Albion Park Rail’s current ADSL is unacceptably pathetic.
