Telstra Whitepages has a different idea of NSW than some - 17:28
I noticed today when looking for a friend's address on whitepages that Telstra seems to think Jerrabomberra is in ACT rather than NSW. All searches I do for anyone I know out there with NSW selected as the state come back empty. However when I change the state to ACT they all come back with matches. I wonder why Telstra seems to be unaware that all the people living out there have to register their cars in NSW and vote in Eden/Monaro for state and federal elections.

Of course I found it got even stranger when, on a whim to see if they knew about Queanbeyan being in NSW, I searched for some friends in Queanbeyan. If I select state as NSW I get some matches with some names. When I change the state to ACT I get completely different matches on the same names. I guess it is nothing new to see Telstra confused and not quite accurate or useful but still it is kind of weird.
