Our pricing approach
nbn has developed the pricing of its product set with the following objectives in mind:
- Maintain uniform national wholesale access pricing.
- Foster competition and innovation by offering access to qualifying customers, regardless of their size.
- Provide simplicity, while offering the flexibility required by customers to differentiate their retail offerings in the market.
- Deliver a wholesale service that will provide an appropriate return to nbn's shareholders and the Government.
To meet these pricing objectives, our pricing is harmonised across the entry level product for the technology platforms used to roll out the nbn™ broadband access network.
Uniform national wholesale access pricing across all of Australia is supported by an entry-level product tier with pricing and specifications independent of the technology platform over which it is delivered.
Customers can build products capable of upgrading to higher speeds, higher availability and a wider range of business features, such as traffic class options and a broad range of features suitable for the small business and enterprise market.
Apart from geographic uniformity and flexibility, nbn's underpinning philosophy for both product and pricing structure has been to deliver simplicity for customers and limit back-office complexity for nbn.
