In response to NBN tower opposed in Rosebank (Echonetdaily, June 17), NBN Co acknowledges there is a range of opinions regarding the proposed fixed wireless facility at 191 Repentance Creek Road.
NBN Co is committed to open and transparent consultation, and has addressed feedback at each stage of our extensive community consultation process. Local residents’ concerns and feedback have been heard and taken into consideration including the relocation of the originally proposed site.
NBN Co is rolling out the National Broadband Network across Australia using a mix of technologies to deliver fast and reliable broadband, using the best-fit solution for each geographical area. Rosebank is typical of other areas around Australia being serviced by fixed wireless technology – which includes the rural outskirts of larger regional centres, and small villages comprising large lot size rural holdings.
Residents of Rosebank can be assured that safety is the overriding priority for NBN Co. We strictly comply with the regulations set out set out by the federal government health agency, the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency.
After careful assessment we believe NBN Co has addressed all feedback received and we plan to proceed with the facility at the current location. We look forward to bringing fast broadband to the local community.
