NBN would fix home cabling under Labor, says Charlton

Homes at Woy Woy and Umina Beach would receive a better NBN experience if Labor was elected at the May 18 Federal election, according to Labor candidate for Robertson, Ms Anne Charlton.

Ms Charlton said a Shorten Labor Government would implement a plan to improve reliability and speeds for up to 10,600 fibre-to-the-node households in the electorate.

She said NBNCo would work with service providers to improve in-home cabling problems to lift speeds and reliability, at no cost to the end user.

"In-home wiring, which runs between telephone sockets in the home, can cause interference to the signal that reaches the modem," Ms Charlton said.

"In fibre-to the-node households, this reduces NBN signal quality, which in turn causes dropouts and poorer speed performance.

"The issue is estimated to impact up to one in five households on the copper-based network."

She said NBNCo had completed trials which found addressing problematic cabling improved service stability, reduced dropouts, and increased attainable speeds by an average of 11 megabits per second.

"It currently costs $150 for households to have this problem fixed," Ms Charlton said.

"Under Labor's plan, if a household is identified as being affected, a technician will be offered to fix the issue at no cost."
