The doctor is in but the NBN is out

A practice that provides three quarters of the cardiology services to the North-West Coast may have to close due to their awful internet connection.

Dr Geoff Evans, who works at the cardiology practice at the North-West Regional Hospital, has noted a decreased service with the transfer from ADSL to NBN. This is due to the fibre node being 1.5km away from the Burnie hospital.

Dr Evans talks to Brian Carlton about the situation and how patients are currently waiting up to 48 hours for potentially life-threatening results.

“When we moved from our ADSL service to our NBN service the speed actually decreased,” he says.
