Voter imact < 4%
If the government wants to avoid many of those customers making the NBN an election issue, it needs a lot more action than it's managed so far.
The voter impact will be marginal.
- Only 14% and falling are ordering 100Mbps plans
- Of those only one third will be on FTTN = 5%
- Only 70% of premises are predicted to connect = 3.5%
Labor have moved away from FTTP so that is not a vote winner.
Cheaper NBN pricing is what voters care most about. Arguably the LNP don't care. Labor could write off >$30 billion of NBN build costs to enable NBNCo to reduce wholesale prices, but the LNP would have a field day labelling Labor 'poor economic managers'.
