Australia nears 6 million premises connected to NBN

Friday 16 August 2019 | 09:08 CET | News
Australia has at least 8 access seeker groups acquiring wholesale services directly from NBN Co at all of the 121 NBN points of interconnect (POIs) across the country, with at least nine groups at 120 POIs and at least 10 at 115, according to a report from Australia's Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). The report also shows that Telstra remains the dominant wholesale access seeker, but its market share declined slightly, while TPG and Optus made small gains. Smaller retail service providers also increased their collective share from 6.8 percent to 7.1 percent.
