NBN blame game continues
Internet connectivity is back on the agenda this week, with the lack of NBN coverage in Baldivis and surrounding suburbs in the spotlight.
While certain homes and businesses in Leda, Wellard and some Rockingham suburbs are still toiling with NBN issues, Baldivis is undoubtedly the suburb most affected.
This is a Federal issue and both sides of the political fence have blamed the other for the problem.
While the Opposition is quick to take aim at Malcolm Turnbull, Communications Minister Mitch Fifield has retorted that in 2013 NBN contractors were downing tools under a Labor government.
I have some level of sympathy for NBN, with the company inundated with residents and businesses crying out for updated infrastructure and improved coverage.
This has led to NBN having to prioritise certain areas and wait times that currently seem unacceptable to those affected.
Given that Federal shadow communications minister Michelle Rowland will attend the meeting in Baldivis next week, it will be interesting to hear how exactly Labor proposes to fix these issues if there is a change in government in the near future.
