This petition made change with 310 supporters!


The petition of the undersigned shows that:

The Margaret River Region needs NBN Fibre-to-the-Node ASAP for Tourism, Agribusiness and Creative industries.

Margaret River is a renowned state, national and international tourism destination and super fast internet is crucial to our social development, digital economy and ongoing global competitiveness.

- Right now there is no NBN Fibre-to-the-Node rollout scheduled for the Margaret River Region.

- For the South West of WA there is currently 55,000 Multi-Technology Mix NBN connections scheduled by June 2016.

- Busselton and Dunsborough combined has 14,000 Multi-Technology Mix NBN connections scheduled by June 2016.

- Margaret River and Augusta combined has only 1,200 Fixed Wireless connections scheduled by June 2016.

- Right now, Telstra supplies 100Mb Velocity fibre connections to only one Margaret River suburb.

If NBN Co chose to, they could arrange with Telstra to provide NBN Fibre-to-the-Node with Telstra's infrastructure in Margaret River.

By supporting this petition, you are helping the Margaret River Business Community demonstrate to NBN Co and Telstra that they need to supply Margaret River with NBN Fibre-to-the-Node before June 2016.

Your petitioners ask that the Senate:

Support the Margaret River Region's Tourism, Agribusiness and Creative industries, social development, digital economy and ongoing global competitiveness by formally recommending NBN Co supply the townships of Margaret River, Augusta, Cowaramup and Witchcliffe with rollout prioritisation of NBN Fibre-to-the-Node before June 2016.
