Sign Up to Stop the Dud Deal
Launched this week, the petition calls on the Minister for Communications and the Chief Executive of NBNCo to prioritise areas in the Mid and Upper Mountains for the planned fibre overbuild, which will see Fibre To The Node (FTTN) connections upgraded to Fibre To The Premises (FTTP).
Ms Templeman said many areas of the Blue Mountains have been left off the initial list, despite areas like Castle Hill being among the first to receive the upgrade.
“After seven years and $57 billion, the Liberal Government has suddenly realised that FTTP is a faster, more reliable and more economical technology than copper. This is a start,” Ms Templeman, who is also the co-chair of the Parliamentary Joint Standing Committee on the NBN, said.
“The complaints to my office during COVID have shown that our ability to run businesses, and work or study from home has been severely impacted by an under-performing NBN that uses old technology.
“This petition is calling on the Morrison Government and NBNCo to prioritise the Macquarie electorate – and particularly Mountains towns like Lawson, Bullaburra, Wentworth Falls, Leura, Katoomba, Medlow Bath, Blackheath and Mount Victoria – for the fibre overbuild.
“In addition, it urges the government to commit to a plan to upgrade to fibre the mish-mash of NBN connections in our region.”
Residents who want to call for a faster, more affordable broadband connection can sign the petition.
“We want the world-class connection that would have been delivered under the original Labor plan,” Ms Templeman said.
“At the moment, all we have is a $57 billion bill and out-of-date technology.
“The Blue Mountains deserves better.”
