RESOLVED: Leeton shire residents had been experiencing various issues will their telecommunications provider, but the problem as now been solved.
AFTER what has been described as weeks of frustration, Leeton shire residents should now be experiencing a return to the norm for their mobile and internet services.
Residents recently took to The Irrigator’sFacebook page to vent their anger at what they called poor internet and mobile service across the shire.
Those with complaints were using the services of Telstra.
They reported not being able to make or receive calls, internet not being available, a person’s voice being garbled if they were able to get through and text messages arriving days late to their recipient.
Business owner and young mother Diana Auddinosaid it had been affecting her capacity to work.
“It’s been going on for months,” she said.
“All of my booking is done online and over the phone, so people weren’t able to get through to me.It’simpacting on my business.
“I haven’t been notified of any work that is going on, but it’s not good enough.
“We should be able to do these simple things.”
The company has nowidentified some residents havebeen using amplifiers and/or illegal signal repeaters that have been disrupting the mobile services.
It said people were likelytrying to boost their TV signal and were unaware of the impact.
“The illegal use of mobile repeater devices, as well as amplifiers, can cause major interference to mobile coverage on the Telstramobile network,” a company spokesman said.
“A lot of the time, they’re unaware what they’re doing can be illegal.
“While some people in an area might not notice a change, often those towards the edge of a coverage area will be significantly affectedwith no coverage at all and this could impact on their ability to make emergency calls.
“Obviously there could be very serious consequences and anyone illegally using illegal repeaters need to be aware this activity is breaking the law and carries severe penalties.
“Unfortunately there is continued easy availability of these devices, especially through the internet.”
