No connection in Childers
MANY of us at one time or another would be guilty of moaning and complaining about the slowness of internet downloads.
One Childers resident has reached boiling point while waiting to be connected to the National Broadband Network.
Peter Tyrrell said he has been fighting with NBN to get a wireless connection to his home since late last year.
Mr Tyrrell wanted to take his complaint and frustrations to social media but unfortunately no connection.
“Some areas of Childers and Howard have access and other areas don’t. Apple Tree Creek has full access to NBN,” he said.
Mr Tyrrell said he couldn’t understand how random houses around town were already connected but not an entire street.
The NBN website suggests some areas in Childers will need to wait until 2018 before they can connect and access the service.
“It’s amazing when all NBN wireless is only a high speed version of 4G wifi,” Mr Tyrrell said.
Since the internet was turned on in the late 1990s Australians have demanded faster and cheaper services from their providers and NBN is no different.
“All I want is better service and connection and it looks like I will be waiting two years before I will see improvements,” Mr Tyrrell said.
He would like to see more support and communication between the authorities setting up these systems.
