Telstra is introducing its 4GX mobile service to sections of Alice Springs, while extensive areas – especially south of the range – are still on 3G with no firm commitment to an upgrade. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

 

The Telstra mobiles, web access mess (continued)

p2136-show-telstraSM

Information is seeping out on how Telstra can deliver to customers a fraction of what they are paying for, and get away with it: At the show, the Finke and other events, and for residents generally, mobile and internet services south of the range are grossly inferior because transmitters on the towers (yellow circle) are mostly pointing the wrong way. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

 

Telstra service horrendous, says Alice farm area resident

Alice Springs man wins Telstra award

 

A business launched by Alice Springs man Christopher Brocklebank (pictured) in 2002 last night won the Micro section of the Telstra NT Business of the Year awards.

 

His venture italklibrary is dedicated to turning written information into stories that can then be spoken in any language and placed online at italklibrary.com

 

“Judges acknowledged the incredible personal story and journey taken by the business owner and were impressed by italklibrary’s business model and outcomes,” says a Telstra media release.

 

Italklibrary has created a national database of stories in multiple languages, including 14 Australian Indigenous languages, and Mr Brocklebank says: “They say a picture speaks a thousand words - our pictures speak a thousand languages.”

Robocops, minder as extras for Giles' exclusive media event

We thought the government had turned the corner with their paranoid media management when Adam Giles gave direct access to ministers, bypassing odious minders who had created a barrier worse than the Berrimah line.
Yet while the Alice Springs News Online did the hard yards on the investigation into the shortcomings of 000 calls, we got no invite yesterday when Mr Giles announced the expansion of the police call centre, amidst plods in Robocop attire, a beaming Police Commissioner and – who was that grateful Member Of The Public shaking Mr Giles by the hand? COMMENT by ERWIN CHLANDA. PHOTOS: Images from the ABC TV News last night.
