Australia to peg price of entry-level NBN plans

Monday 2 November 2020 | 09:07 CET | News
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) plans to ensure NBN's 12/1Mbps entry-level plans remained low, and prices at the low end would not rise "if we have anything to do with it", ZDNet reports, citing ACCC chairman Rod Sims. "We're intending to peg the price of the entry-level product and that would be pegged irrespective of what happens with [NBN fibre upgrades]. And indeed, that's what we're working on right now to peg that entry-level price", Sims said.
