SOLICITORS at the Fremantle Community Legal Centre were breathing a sigh of relief after the Turnbull government backed down over major funding cuts this week.

Complaints about broadband have become the most common issue raised with the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman, yet the buck-passing between retailers and NBN Co mean that Australian households are constantly given the run-around in trying to resolve these problems.
