Bayn­ton in­ter­net is­sues to be re­solved

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

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.
