I’m still wait­ing for NBN to ar­rive

THIS week we’ve asked peo­ple whether or not they’re happy with the Na­tional Broad­band Net­work and their re­sponses were not sur­pris­ing.

Last year it was an­nounced Bund­aberg would be the first ones to get NBN and as of Novem­ber 2016, com­plaints con­tin­ued to rise as there were many houses that still could not be con­nected – or it was just too slow.

When we con­ducted a poll on Face­book, some of the users who com­mented had no idea we could get NBN in the North Bur­nett, oth­ers said it was okay for a few min­utes then it would be too slow and some couldn’t see the ben­e­fits of get­ting NBN at all.

In the North Bur­nett, I be­lieve it is im­per­a­tive that we are con­nected to re­li­able in­ter­net.

In a small town and re­gion, many peo­ple have loved ones who live in the cities and with­out NBN or ADSL, you can feel iso­lated.

I’ve been wait­ing for NBN to ar­rive in my apart­ment for over two months, the com­pany said they’d ar­rive but never showed. It’s the fourth time I’ve spo­ken to them so far.

For now, I’ll have to hotspot my data with my phone and pay more in data us­age.
