The next installment in my continued quest to obtain late 20th century broadband access in the 21st century …
Wrote email to Justin Milne, Managing Director, BigPond (Telstra internet department) asking why I cannot get modern technology when I live in the largest city in Australia.
So far no response, but did a little research & found a great site that explains some of the ways to keep up th fight. It is on the dataco.com.au web site Telstra :
When NO can mean YES. I’ll be trying some of these suggestions and will track my progress here.
In the meantime, I’ve also discovered a lot of people who hate Telstra, this includes (but is not limited to:
- I Hate Telstra
- Tricked by Telstra
- Telstra Exposed
- the disarmingly simple “TELSTRA CAN GET FUCKED” site (NB: their shouting, not mine)
RESULT: As soon as the wireless networks that do not rely on Telstra come of age I will be an early adopter. Telstra is a business that ignores their customer’s needs & as such they will become a dinosaur – we may just find Telstra’s fossilized remains in the not too distant future?
