Tasmanian Liberal Senator Richard Colbeck has distributed a survey to 1,700 residents and businesses in the NBN trial area of Smithton to get feedback "from everyday users, without Labor spin."
Colbeck said he sought data on the installation process, whether or not they had signed up to an ISP for the fibre network and how satisfied they were with the service.
He urged residents and businesses to return the forms.
"This feedback is an important part of the Coalition's community consultation process," he said. "I look forward to the responses."
Colbeck claimed to have had "a number of people from the [Smithton] area contact [him] in recent weeks, some who are satisfied and some who are most unhappy about the NBN."
"It is important to gather comprehensive feedback of the trial given the NBN is the costliest infrastructure project in Australia's history," he said.
"My survey is designed for Smithton residents and businesses to speak their minds about their experience with the NBN."
