Please consider signing this URGENT petition imploring the Government to keep landlines in rural areas!
The Productivity Commission is currently undertaking an inquiry into the Telecommunications Universal Service Obligation. Draft recommendation 9.1 calls for the Australian Government to phase out Telstra’s obligation to provide landlines.
If rural Australians in the NBN satellite and fixed wireless footprints lose their landlines, they will be left without a safe means of voice communications.
The petition is on behalf of people suffering from the condition of EHS/ MTS (Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome/ Microwave Toxicity Syndrome). Those with this condition cannot tolerate wireless signals without becoming ill. This can occur when exposed to WiFi, smart meters, mobile phones, Bluetooth, etc.
Losing landlines in rural areas would be a human rights and health disaster. We need a radiation-free NBN for everyone. Don’t let them take away people’s right to choose radiation-free communications!
