Gungahlin – Smoke Signals now required

By Growling Ferret 30 October 2007 23

I understand why nobody else had posted this from Gungahlin, as the region has suffered a Comms blackout last night.

It seems a contractor may not have Dialled before he Dug, and the fibre optic cable to Gungahlin Exchange has meant that much of Gungahlin is home telephone and broadband free since about 2pm yesterday.

Does anyone have any more information? I have not found anything on line

A question to Jonathon Reynolds, is that as an aspiring Liberal Party candidate for the seat of Molonglo, what will you do to fix the phones and get the trains running on time?

There should be path redundancy in the phone network if there is not then Telstra should be shot. Don’t give me this rot about costs, because that is nonesense, redundancy is a basic service. No city should suffer an outage like this because one bearer was broken.

I’m sure if I could actually get broadband in Ngunnawal, this would have pissed me off. Its never ceases to amaze me that I had broadband in a 100+ year old house in the country town of Orange but I can’t get broadband in a place thats about 10 years old in the capital of Australia.
