Baynton internet issues to be resolved
Internet connectivity issues in Baynton will be rectified by the end of April, according to Telstra area general manager Tony Carmichael.
The Pilbara News received messages from residents in Baynton who had been left without an internet service, with one resident pointing out children needed access to internet at home for school work.
Mr Carmichael said the availability of ADSL ports on Telstra’s network constantly changed over time with demand and upgrades to the network.
He said in the case of Baynton, it was a popular area with a waiting list for ADSL ports.
“We apologise for the delay in getting some people connected in this area,” he said.
“The rapid expansion of this area with more housing lots becoming available over a short space of time had significantly increased demand for ADSL ports and we are working on projects to address this need.”
Mr Carmichael said residents in Baynton keen to take advantage of new ports should visit their local Telstra Shop.
He said wireless internet available through Telstra’s mobile network was a viable alternative for those who couldn’t wait.
NBN rollout is due to commence construction in Baynton in the fourth quarter of 2016.
