Leeming Waits for NBN

LOVELY to hear that Applecross, Ardross and Booragoon will soon be connected to the NBN.

I know people will be thrilled to see their tax dollars doing some good, and so close to home, too.

I have not checked lately, but the date for Leeming to “get connected” was so far in the future that we might as well forget about it, and just go on living with the dismal Wi-Fi connectivity that has been a feature of this area for years.

Funny how we can drive out to Garden City and have five bars on the phone, and get by (just) with one bar at home.

When are the councillors of Booragoon going to get off their collective backside and start batting a bit harder for us ratepayers “east of the freeway”?
