Re: NBN compulsory roll out

She will have to migrate across, but will be able to get a phone only plan.

 

You problem will be is that the phone will no longer work when the power goes out. You might want to look at getting her a basic mobile phone on a longlife prepaid for emergencies, or to get her an emergency pendant which works on the mobile network. Have a chat to either the local council, pharmacist or health service, they should be able to point you in the right direction.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
