Still no date shown on the above post by '88KATmando'. This website is essentially useless, because posts are not dated in real-time OR as soon as they are approved by mods/made available on the website. There is thus no way for readers to know whether a post is still relevant, or not.
Sooo, this website does not show any DATE whatsoever in conjunction with this post; not even a YEAR. Therefore, the post/information is completely useless to me. It might be 10 years old/completely irrelevant now, or it might have been posted yesterday.
Not sure about broadband on Russell. I have lived on both Macleay and now Lamb and have had trouble getting an available port on both islands, hope one becomes available soon as WiFi is expensive. COVERAGE: I believe the back end or the far end or the end closest to Stradbroke can have big problems with mobile and wifi - and broadband? coverage, so be very careful. This I know as told straight to me by the horses mouth a Telstra guy. From the ferry out to say Waratah street should still be ok but best to check it all out before committing to living at that end of Russell.
