Australia: ACCC slashes Telstra wholesale broadband prices by 10 percent

 |  October 11, 2015

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has published its final decision on fixed-line pricing, slashing the prices that Telstra can charge its wholesale customers for use of its legacy copper network during the transition to the National Broadband Network by 9.4 percent.

While the ACCC had originally planned to reduce prices across seven of its fixed-line wholesale services by just 0.7 percent, its revised draft decision on the price cut, announced in June, said the amount that Telstra charges retailers for use of its broadband internet services would be cut by 9.6 percent from October 2015.

The competition watchdog then amended this to 9.4 percent in its final decision on Friday morning.
