Australia - National Broadband Network - RSPs Pricing and Products


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

By early 2013, 45 retail service providers (RSPs) were accredited by NBN Co to take part in the various pilots, as well as in the official rollout program. As NBN Co is a pure wholesale operator the end-users will depend upon the RSPs for innovative products and affordable pricing.

Affordable price is the key to a successful uptake of NBN services. Entry level 12/1Mb/s services are available for as low as $29.95 and for an extra $10 a telephone service will be added. IPTV add-ons are also 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 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.
