Residents and businesses in Smithton received a survey in the mail during December asking for their feedback on the National Broadband Network (NBN) rollout.
The surveys were sent out by Tasmanian Liberal Senator Richard Colbeck.
"Smithton is one of the three Tasmanian locations trialling the NBN. I have had a number of people from the area contact me in recent weeks, some who are satisfied and some who are unhappy about the NBN," Senator Colbeck said.
"However, it is important to gather comprehensive feedback of the trial given the NBN is the costliest infrastructure project in Australia's history.
"My survey is designed for Smithton residents and businesses to speak their minds about their experience with the NBN.
"The survey has gone out to 1700 households and businesses in the Smithton trial area.
"It is about gaining real information and feedback from everyday users, without the Labor spin.
"I am asking Smithton people about the installation process at their house or business, whether they have signed up to an internet provider to use the NBN, and how satisfied they are with the service they are now receiving.
"This feedback is an important part of the Coalition's community consultation process.
"I look forward to the responses."
