Opening access to the Stratton WA sub exchange

For a number of years now most of Midland has had access to ADSL2+ and competition in the ADSL industry however anyone who is connected to the Stratton sub exchange has been denied access to high speed ADSL due to Telstra\'s refusal to provide access to the sub exchange for third parties. This situation does not look like it will ever change so unless we take some action we will all be left in the technological dark ages and paying inflated Telstra wholesale rates for our ADLS. With many home buyers now paying close attention to infrastructure this also has the potential decreasing the value of properties in the area. It is time that we let our local, state and federal government know that this is just not acceptable. By signing this petition you are asking our publicly elected representatives to apply pressure on Telstra to open up the exchange to competition. This may require upgrading of the exchange and the release of some more public land to Telstra by our local council. This petition will be forwarded to our local council as well as our state and federal MPs.

  • Dianne Raymer We are so far behind other countries with our internet, we should not however be behind other suburbs/towns in our own state. Internet is the way of the future and that is the way we should be heading, no matter where you live.

  • Dwayne We should all be pushing for a NBN install date.... I can't see the exchange being re-classified... By rights it should be classified as its own exchange as its has all the equipment (as any normal exchange has), But it would allow other isp's to gain access and install their own equipment...

  • Kerrie It took me like 10 minutes just to load this page :( So tired of slow internet speeds and not being able to have a choice of internet providers and services. Something needs to be done asap, why should the residents of Stratton & Jane Brook continue to suffer in the dark ages!! What's 4G, I am lucky to get H+
