Australia - National Broadband Network - RSPs Pricing and Products


A number of retail service providers (RSPs) are accredited by NBN Co to pilot projects as well as deploy services as part of the NBN rollout program. Given that NBN Co is a wholesale operator, end-users depend upon the RSPs for products and services.

Affordable price is the key to a successful uptake of these services delivered over the NBN. Entry level 12/1Mb/s services are available for as low as $29.95 and for an extra $10 a telephone service can be added. Video streaming services such as IPTV are add-ons generally priced at $10. Voice only services are around $25 per month. Compared with similar services available over the current telecoms networks these offerings are most competitive. Over the longer term this should easily lead to a more than 70% commercial uptake.

In this report we provide an overview of the products on offer by the retail service providers as well as forecasts for household penetration of NBN uptake over the years 2015 and 2020.

Key developments:

Early pricing for NBN plans by retail service providers, plans and speeds pricing variers as bundled options are added, MyNetFone acquires Spark’s international wholesale voice business.
