Residents cut off

DROUGHT hit farmers in the Central Highlands have been dealt another blow - hundreds have been unable to use their landlines, mobile phones or internet for the past week.

With no confirmed repair date in sight, Rolleston residents like Karen Smith are growing frustrated with telco giant Telstra, which is the primary service provider in the area.

Mrs Smith said it felt as though the telco was "just spinning us along”.

"It's almost as if Telstra is holding us to ransom. Our neighbour has got a little bit of mobile service but they paid over $1000 for a Cel-Fi, which draws signal from the tower.”

InTheNews

Kondinin Group researchers Ben White and Josh Giumelli have made their annual pilgrimage to outback New South Wales to test the latest batch of mobile phones.

To the average farmer, the smartphone is more than just a convenience, but potentially one of their most important business tools.

With so many of us accepting the fact that we are ‘time poor’, the ability to get work done, check markets, weather information, read and respond to messages and communicate with workers and family members can make a real difference to farm operations.

Finder to the Node: Are mobile connections really overtaking the NBN?

Lots of mobile services, but actual data flows more freely on fixed lines in our round-up of the week's NBN news.


Mobile numbers are growing, but data is still king on fixed lines

The ACCC's Internet Activity Report makes for interesting reading in the concluding stages of the rollout of the National Broadband Network.

One of the most frequent criticisms of the NBN has been the idea that mobile technologies will usurp the need for fixed lines, with technologies such as 5G touted as the eventual endpoint. These assumptions generally ignore the shorter range of 5G towers and the reality that any telco will tell you, that a 5G tower generally needs a fixed line cable behind it.

If The NBN Sucks In Your Suburb, Consider Mobile Broadband

17 May 2019
NbnAltNews

 Mobile broadband plans used to come in two flavours - 'bugger all data' or 'expensive as buggery'. They were chiefly used by metro home businesses with plenty of cash to burn. Thankfully, those days are now over.

Mobile broadband is an internet service provided over Australia's mobile networks - typically via a SIM card that you insert into a wireless modem. For the past few months, the price of 4G mobile broadband plans has been steadily declining. At the same time, data allowances are getting more and more generous.
