NBN is­sues

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

A BIG prob­lem with an NBN wire­less con­nec­tion is that dur­ing a power out­age the phone also gets cut. You are not only in the dark, you also have no phone. In ar­eas of poor mo­bile cov­er­age you have no com­mu­ni­ca­tions. The rea­son – the com­mu­ni­ca­tion box fit­ted to the premises needs the house­hold power sup­ply to work. My an­swer to this would be to leave the phone con­nected to the cop­per land­line, and the in­ter­net to the wire­less. I have spo­ken to Tel­stra re­gard­ing this prob­lem, maybe oth­ers should do the same. I am yet to re­ceive an an­swer. P BONNELL
