Australia's NBN puts wholesale pricing structure in order

National Broadband Network Co., the government-backed service provider charged with building out the Australian government's National Broadband Network (NBN), announced it will unveil its wholesale service pricing to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) in June.

Mike Quigley, CEO of NBN Co., told Australia's Senate Select Committee that the company has carefully crafted its wholesale offerings. "We've been developing a wholesale product for some time now, and we've been involved in a range of industry consultations over the past four months," Quigley said.

In March, NBN had signed wholesale agreements with competitive providers Primus, Internode and iiNet, which all plan to begin offering services over the NBN beginning this July.

But it appears that the agreements aren't exactly a done deal yet for iiNet. "I would phrase it as 'we don't have an agreement... Until that agreement is completed, then we would continue to say that," said iiNet's chief regulatory officer Stephen Dalby.
