COMMENTS ATTRIBUTABLE TO SUSAN TEMPLEMAN re TELSTRA BUS VISIT

March 13, 2020

COMMENTS ATTRIBUTABLE TO SUSAN TEMPLEMAN re TELSTRA BUS VISIT:

“I’m very pleased Telstra agreed to come and meet directly with customers, many of whom have had a terrible time with mobile and phone lines.

“At both Colo and Bilpin, many people who had raised ongoing issues with my office came along to speak directly to Telstra representatives and I know there are many others who indicated they were going to be making the most of the opportunity, including in St Albans tomorrow.

 

“Hopefully some of the technical issues that people have been faced with can be resolved quickly.

 

“There are bigger infrastructure issues that will be beyond this Telstra team’s ability to resolve, like those problems being experienced by the Bilpin and Mountain Lagoon RFS in the lead up to and during the fires.

 

“However, it’s really important that Telstra hears the level of frustration community members have.

 

“The lack of service has been particularly worrying for older and more vulnerable people, and those trying to run a business from home.

 

“As one couple from Kurrajong Heights told me, they are only an hour from the city, they can see the city and the mobile tower from their window, yet they still can’t get a decent mobile signal.

 

“This community deserves a 21st Century communication system.”
