More Coverage on Gungahlin Broadband Issues

March 19th, 2010

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.

ITNews.com.au 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 www.itnews.com.au 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.

The Word is Out

September 29th, 2009

Two important events have occurred in the last 72 hours that have brought significant attention to my site.

Posts on Whirlpool Broadband forums about this site were made late Sunday afternoon 27th September 2009 by the user Beastboy. The reference to this site was posted under an existing thread discussing Crace exchange in the Internode discussion area. The actual post and subsequent discussion can be seen here – Whirlpool Forum Discussion – Crace/ACT backhaul/congestion issue

The second event of significance occurred this evening when the post I made on The RiotACT website was made “Featured Post.” The RiotACT website is an important web resource for the ACT region and is used by numerous organisations and residents to discuss local events, issues and even burgers. The full post I made on The RiotACT can be seen here – Gungahlin’s Frustrations with the Internet

I would like to thank The RiotACT for seeing this issue as worthy of such focus.

I will update each of these posts with comments and forum replies as things progress so keep an eye out.
