Labor is calling for an independent expert to undertake an inquiry into the NBN Satellite service, Sky Muster.
 
Member for Eden Monaro Dr Mike Kelly says Sky Muster should have been a good news story for the region by allowing rural people with existing poor internet speeds and capacity to connect to the NBN.
 
Instead, with one quarter of places in Eden-Monaro only able to access NBN through Sky Muster, he says he's been bombarded with complaints about the capacity, the cost and the drops out rates of the satellite.
  
Labor is also calling on a new ‘Fair Use’ policy to increase the data allowances for Sky Muster customers.
