Its detailed and provides me with the specifics I need to take it up with the relevant Telcos,” Dr Gillespie said. “It would appear that during peak periods data speeds are incredibly slow due to what some describe as bandwidth crunch which is caused by too many people using the network,” Dr Gillespie said. “To me, that means more capacity is required and that is why I am taking it up with Telstra, NBNCo and the Minister to find out what plans are currently in place to improve the capacity of the communications infrastructure in and around Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest. If there isn’t, then it’s going to have to be put on the agenda,” he added.
