Fibre sales people

Rosie from Parkvale

At 8pm last night (Sunday) when it was almost dark, I had a knock at my back door from another fibre salesman.

I was taken aback at the timing but I was told I needed to sign up as the house in front of me had signed up and they (not sure who they are) needed to install it in my house at the same time.
I am totally sick and tired of phone calls, mail, e-mail and door knocks re fibre. I cannot see the purpose of it in my case as only use broadband for e-mails and news feed and use well less than 20 gig a month and mostly use the internet via my cell phone. We still use the landline a lot.

Apparently I will not be able to sell my house in the future if it doesn't have fibre and I will be the only one in the street without it. And the Govt is going to make me have it within 3 years whether I like it or not. I feel pressured (bullied) over fibre and don't see why I should be made to have something that I don't want. So far the best offer I have had if I agree to it is that my monthly phone bills will reduce by $5. In some quotes it will go up.
I have decided not to have it at this stage and I just wish that my decision would be respected and that all the fibre sales people would leave me alone. Is there anywhere that I can register that I want to be fibre-free and that I won't harassed any more over this issue?

Towbar and fold-down rear seats make it also useful for the handyman and keen gardener to take home supplies. Being easy to maintain (not full of computerised gadgetry) and easy to drive (automatic, with power steering) mean it would be equally suitable for a new driver.
