NBN Co generated total revenue of $4.6 billion in FY21, an increase of 21% year-on-year.

The company rolling out Australia's national broadband network has reported revenue of $3.5 billion for the first nine months of the financial year 2020-21, with no breakdown offered for the third quarter alone.
Even with the NBN Co as a government entity in public hands (at least for now), the companies that retail the nbn service are faced with artificially limited capacity and pricing constraints while selling an unlimited product to consumers, leading to six month introductory deals that then raise the price afterwards - and it’s no surprise to see Internet providers and end-users still complaining about the NBN alike.

The NBN Co needs to undertake a structural change to its wholesale pricing model that takes into account the changing nature of broadband use in the wake of the pandemic, independent telecommunications analyst Paul Budde says.
The NBN Co's latest pricing review appears to be a massive waste of time, with the company putting up ideas, ignoring feedback on all but minor issues and then just ploughing on with own agenda, one retail service provider says.
NBN Co is proposing a soft cap on variable data capacity charges, more generous data inclusions and says it will progress long-term pricing reform through a Special Access Undertaking (SAU) variation consultation with industry and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
