Maleny: NBN

To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This petition of citizens from the hinterland of Maleny, Queensland and visitors to the area, draws to the attention of the House:

The concerns about possible serious health issues for humans and wildlife related to the use by NBN Co of Fixed Wireless Towers utilising microwaves in their provision of a broadband service to the communities around Maleny

We therefore ask the House to:

Recognise the health impacts of the use of microwaves in the communications industry Meet their election promise of broadband provision by landline.

Ensure that NBN Co does not use Fixed Wireless Towers for the provision of broadband services

Ensure that NBN Co provides an equivalent service to all residents as required in the Government Expectations letter to NBN Co dated 8 April 2014.

Demand that ARPANSA recognises the growing evidence of biological danger to health in setting the Standards for radiation emissions

from 419 citizens
