The National Broadband Network.
I've been reading about this in the papers and hearing about it on the news.
So I knew it was coming and got a bit excited.
I read a list of locations where the work had already begun, where it was scheduled for the next three years, where it was scheduled for the next decade. Hmmm.
Included was a list of Adelaide suburbs that were getting the broadband network and when.
I'd thought it was going everywhere.
But no! No no no!
Some suburbs are not only not getting it soon, but missing out altogether!
Yes, you read that right.
Fullarton, and immediate surrounding suburbs are not getting this National Broadband Network.
Bad enough that I'm now in a location with iffy coverage, but to learn there will be no improvement, not even in a decade.....well....to say I'm disappointed would be an understatement!
I wonder what the criteria was, to be included in the rollout?
The number of businesses in the area?
Did they survey the number of computers in the area?
The general age of the population?
There are quite a few oldies here, but that doesn't mean we aren't connected.
