Bereft of internet

ONE of the few joys of being an 85-year-old was having access to the internet thus being able to email or Skype friends and relatives in the UK, or revisit the places lived in years ago via Google Earth, use Google for information on a multitude of subjects, receive notices from various organisations. The list goes on!

However the internet services provider (One Seniors) that I used for more than five years has gone out of business and I am bereft.

I have approached at least four internet service providers, and spent many hours on the phone to people in the Philippines and other places trying to get connected but without success.

It seems that Telstra has the monopoly on whatever is necessary to provide a service and say that I am too far away from the exchange.

How was I getting the internet before One Seniors went under?

I very much doubt that NBN will get up the hill to Grindelwald in my lifetime.

I am sending this letter via snail mail but there is talk that even postal services may have to be reduced.
