More Coverage on Gungahlin Broadband Issues

March 19th, 2010 by Russell Leave a reply »

After Kate Lundy’s press release and the release of the interview three major news and industry sites/radio stations covered the issue.

2CC Radio Canberra rang me for an off air interview which was incorporated into the hourly news bulletin Friday 12th of March 2010. This included quotes off the press release and a sound byte from me. ran a story on its website which quoted both the press release and posts I had made on this site. The news article can be seen on at under the NBN category. You can read it here.

The third place the my campaign was posted was the National Broadband Network News and Information website. The article posted here used both press release and this website as source material. You can read the article here.

I am working on a submission to Senator Lundy and Senator Conroy as well as other things. This coverage has provided renewed interest in the campaign and I will take what advantage I can to keep the issue in peoples minds.

Discussion still continues on Whirlpool forums over the congestion issue with one post in particular still receiving updates 12 months after the original post. I recommend reading and contributing to the discussions as many industry representitives participate as well as the general public. The Whirlpool Forums post can be seen here.

I will post more when it happens, I don’t expect that to be long.

    Just bit the bullet and bought a Telstra wireless broadband router for my online gaming (will leave Internode for all general net/downloading). Works a treat, and haven’t had any bad ping (i.e. over 50ms) since I’ve started playing.

    Sad that it came to that though…

    Its not just Gungahlin in Canberra. The suburb of Bruce is also the same.
    Its the same with all new suburbs within all towns in Australia. My parents in Sydney city are in the same boat.
    Stuck on a pair gain system. When will this ever get sorted?
