New to the country - had expected first-world conditions re internet access. Alas, Paradise Valley, Rotorua reminds of dark, unconnected Africa - and only 4.5 km from town as the crow flies. There are about 40-50 households affected, some including businesses and home schooling setups.
My question: Is it worthwhile getting together as a community and "demanding" connection? Has any other community in NZ been successful in getting connected through petitioning the local MP, picketing, filling in online expressions of interest, or otherwise?
