Letters: Internet is needed around Bargara

Letters: I RECENTLY saw the article about NBN being fast-tracked to Bundaberg region.

It seems that yet again a rather important issue is being overlooked.

Those in surrounding areas like Bargara are being ignored.

Hundreds of residents are unable to connect to obtain internet as the system is full.

Waiting lists are months long and there are no plans to rectify this problem - no upgrades to the exchange and NBN isn't on the cards for several years. It's yet to be even considered.

Good for the region and its new NBN network, but it already had internet.
