Nimbin in talks with Telstra

CATCH-22: living in a mobile phone "black spot" can be infuriating, and the only way to get better reception is for the service provider to install another base station.

Nimbin resident Judy Hills is pondering the pros and cons, after receiving a letter telling her Telstra is proposing a new mobile base station in the Nimbin area.

"I live in the village," Judy said. "Internet speed is very slow at times, and it crashes quite a bit. And Telstra mobile reception is dreadful from Nimbin all the way to Lismore."

Nimbin residents are invited to meet with Telstra people at the Nimbin Town Hall next week to discuss the project.

Judy said there are concerns about having a base tower close to the village. "If they want to put it very close to Nimbin it will be a bit scary for some people. Telstra must have a place in mind but we don't know. I'd encourage people to go to one of the meetings and have their voice heard."

The meetings are on Tuesday, December 4, at 12.30-2.30pm and 4.30-6.30pm.
