Opening access to the Stratton WA sub exchange

76 Signatures Goal: 100

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.

    Moved into Stratton temporarily (renting) in order to be closer to school. However, trying to complete any work here at home using the internet is exceptionally painful and time consuming due to slow speeds and constant disconnections. Payed less for internet in Darlington, ($80month with iinet) for unlimited downloads, adsl2+ speeds and no congestion/disconnections. Would rather put up with the bad public transport there, than the terrible internet here lol. It's not fair that people in Stratton are paying the same money for a far inferior internet service.

    I think Stratton should have its own exchange considering that the housing development in the surrounding area is now starting to increase and its about time something has to be done in regards to improving the quality of the internet market, as others have mentioned in the comments we are being forced to pay more for less which is a joke. The point made would be adding in an exchange to draw in more competition which would offer better products/services and the it would add slight niche to the housing development which would allow more people to move into area like stratton and its surrounding neighbors. Think of the younger generation the choices and the ability to do more at school/colleges.. I understand that Money can be a problem to implement such infrastructure but i leave the council/shire with this statement "if you you dont spend the money on the infrastructure then how can development thrive in a community".
