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).
Recent comments from telecommunications providers Telstra and Aussie Broadband about their decreasing profits from NBN sales underline how short-sighted the Labor government was to keep the expenditure for the NBN off-budget and insist that it be repaid by the company set up to create and run the network.
