Help get better Internet for Lake MacDonald and Forest Acres Drive residents
Those of us that live in the Lake MacDonald/Forest Acres area are all aware of how poor our internet connection is. Some of us are only on ADSL1, and as well as having such a slow connection packet loss occurs frequently. Apparently the NBN is available in Lake MacDonald Drive but there are no plans to take it further onto Highland or even to Forest Acres. We are less than 2 hours from a capital city, 20 minutes from Noosa and we deserve better but won’t get it unless we do something. This is also exacerbated by the poor phone reception. Most of us can only get reception if we are with Telstra, it’s only 3G and some need an expensive booster or satellite to even get that. Some of us operate a small business from home which has brought money and jobs into the region and we rely on the internet to work.
If you have this problem and would like to make your voice heard please respond to this petition. We will then raise it with the local politicians and anyone else who might be in a position to do something about it.
