Living in a poorly serviced area, I used to rely on my Landline phone for access to the outside world, and services available over the phone. IF the power was out, for a day or a week (its happened) I could still use that Landline.

NOW... that isn't possible. :mad
BECAUSE the NBN steals the copper network, the phone only works when the NBN is working. !!
So.. it drops out everyday, unpredictably...where once it was rock solid access to external assistance. I have a security system which relied on that Landline. It has cost me money I can't afford to pay, to totally change it.

A genuine safety issue has been totally shat on by the NBN and The government.
And this happens all the time. No NBN No Landline. I pay for this so-called service, because I must by Law. It seems extremely unjust, and a backward step, to operate a country's internet service on this basis.

That means ... power out? towers out NO COMMUNICATION!!!!!
Think major storms. :roll :roll :jump

THIS APPLIES TO EVERYONE.

No matter how many times it gets said, it still can't be said to often - MTM is the worst fuck up of infrastructure delivery in Australia's history. They have fucked every aspect of it to bollocks and beyond.

Getting more advertising in the mail now in preparation for this farce being switched on in my area in a couple of months time, first from TGP now from iNet. Telstra technician told wife that our house is about as far from the node as it's possible to get so I won't even bother until they force us over.

Yep. That was advice to everyone I knew who hadn't signed up and switched the NBN.

I had a power cut, due to extreme weather on Sunday. It went out at 6pm Sunday and I got it back this morning.. 3.42 am.

Thats what ? 33 hrs.42 mins? I am entitled to be paid compensation from the Provider .. it will happen automatically. Its happened before.
So anyway I had to impose on a good neighbour who had a generator, to save some valuable protein in my freezer, but I lost a fair bit of food. Thrown out.

I had no internet and limited access to the outside due to my mobile ph charge going down. In fact, I asked my neighbour to charge my ph as well, so I would have SOME communication available.

My MAIN complaint, other than the abysmal service reliability, IS

I once had a Landline. DIDN'T MATTER if the POWER was OUT.!!!
I had a connection.!!
NOW....?

OH
so sorry
n b n
does not allow that
nothing can be done

This MAY be stating the obvious,
BUT......


OUR GOVT departments, offices etc... DO NOT USE the NBN.
They all have their own intranet. THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT.!!!

Just imagine?? if the government had to use a similar system.?? The Country would be FUCKED within ONE WEEK.

The NBN is for us suckers... very manageable by govt. Very easy to obtain metadata.

The various govt departments etc.. are not bothered by the NBN, because THEY ARE NOT FORCED TO USE IT.!!

UNLIKE US. :emb :emb :mad :mad :mad :mad :mad :mad :mad :mad :mad
