Hello,my local member of parlament wants to sell telstra.On chatting with her it seems she believes that sat phones work absolutely everywhere no worries and mobile coverage is great in the bush,and cdma is the best thing available,and VB is free north of birdsville ,I wish have given her my experiences re the above including that sat phones have problems under trees,cdma doesnt work on east coast etc.

Anyone have any polite comments re telstra service,or not , failures, non coverage etc.that can be passed on to city based polly.
All help appreciated

You would have better results talking to a dry pile of dog bleep on the lawn than a puppet from Canberra...

there used to be a very busy site called antitelstra.com if it hasnt been closed down it would be a start - you can also search for others on gooogle yahoo or snap search engines plenty of Non-fan mail out there for telstra.

My property is 54k as the crow flies from Canberra and I still have black spots on CDMA and as for GSM, forget it.

My best form of comm's is on UHF with the local fire brigade.

Mobile phones are great IF you're near to a town or city.

I just turn mine off when driving around WA. There is NO coverage between towns. Stayed out about 15 kms north of Meekatharra last week and only JUST managed to get a signal and only IF I held the phone at the right angle and didnt move a muscle. Still it dropped out three times!

Its a CDMA and I have had better range with it than the old GSM I had. I would NEVER rely on it for any form of communication! Heaps of the smaller towns in WA still seem to have the GSM tower up in town, but there's no CDMA coverage.

Selling Telstra will probably mean that we end up with no coverage in the bush, to few people and not enough profit. You dont see too many towns with Vodaphone or any of the other carriers in country WA.

I dont know who the polly is and not the least bit interested to know. But I do totally agree with Truckster, dont bother wasting your time, she has probably already spent plenty of hers on the casting couch anyway. Political expediency did away with the analoge system, it should have been immediately replaced with a sat. system which I understand is very widely used in what we are told are"third world countries" Our present mobile system is exactly as advertised - 95% of population, but only 5% of land area.
cheers haze

All good comment except for Truckster. His type of comment and language ruins forums.
