MALENY Forums will host a community forum for residents of Maleny and surrounds on Monday, June 7 at 5pm on issues raised by residents about the nbn.
The issues include that access to the nbn locally will not be of the same standard and speed as in city centres. The aim of the forum is to increase community understanding and awareness of the issues and possible solutions.
Maleny resident Richard Proudfoot said that after waiting since 2011 for a high-speed connection to the Australian taxpayer-funded National Broadband Network, he was told by an nbn technician that his house could not be connected.
Guest speaker at the forum will be Marcello Massi, the community and stakeholder manager from NBN Co, Federal Member for Fisher, Andrew Wallace, plans to attend and an invitation has been extended to a representative from Telstra.
The forum will be held in the Maleny Community Centre. Registrations are essential via
