Labor promises NBN improvements
The ALP may write down the value of the NBN to make access more affordable.
The Labor Party says that if it wins the next federal election, it will fix the economics of the NBN.
This could include giving broadband users access to more efficient fibre technology rather than copper cables, Fairfax reports.
Opposition communications spokesperson Michelle Rowland says the government needs to be honest about the broadband's future.
Writing down the value of the NBN would reduce wholesale broadband prices.
NBN Co recently told a Senate committee that customer satisfaction with its services dropped from a rating of 7.2 out of 10 in 2016 to 6.5 last year.
“If (Communications Minister) Mitch Fifield had been more focused on NBN consumers and less focused on installing Peter Dutton as prime minister, we would not have this situation,” Ms Rowland said.
“Less downtime, greater accountability and fewer missed appointments - that is what consumers deserve and what Labor wants to achieve.”
