Telstra proposes 'fundamental changes' to NBN pricing framework

Tuesday 6 August 2019 | 08:59 CET | News
Australian operator Telstra is recommending some "fundamental changes" to the NBN pricing framework. These changes include the removal of the separate volume-based pricing charge (CVC); simpler single-point pricing for the standard NBN speed tiers (50/20 and 100/40) with prices reduced by around AUD 20; as well as the reduction of the price for superfast services (250 Mbps and up) to under AUD 100. Telstra also proposes the introduction of an AUD 10 per month voice-only service; and the launch of a wholesale price discount for targeted vulnerable and low-income customers in need.
