National Broadband Network Forum

Many people have problems with, or are concerned about, the roll-out of the NBN in Southern Tasmania. Along with Julie Collins, Brian Mitchell, and Michelle Rowland I held a forum on the Eastern Shore to hear some of the concerns and to help solve problems where we are able.

Well over 100 people turned up to have their say. We heard many concerning stories of people waiting for months to be connected, being supplied with the wrong advice, receiving multiple modems-or none, and some who are only a few kilometres from the Hobart CBD having no option but the satellite service.

Thank you to all that came along to have their say. We must keep this Government accountable for the second rate NBN. In a state like Tasmania with regions of high unemployment it is vital that we future-proof our economy to take advantage of every opportunity we have to showcase, and allow access to, our unique products and services to the world.
