By October NBN network is all set to divide its customer into two class!
A class war is about to take place within NBN network users, as the network colossal is all set to divide its network users into two class i.e. those who can pay for higher minimum standard service and those who can’t.
The situation came into light after NBN released its new price rate which was full of surprise. The new wholesale cost for NBN broadband service is $45 per month for 12 Mbps, 25 Mbps or 50 Mbps. The sudden price outburst was never a part of NBN original announcement,
for the new decision was made between the retail partners and NBN Co.
As explained by the spokesperson of NBN network, “working with RSPs on migrating customers currently on 12Mbps services to higher speeds, so they can obtain a significantly improved NBN experience.”
The new price structure will not be levied to existing 12 Mbps and 25 Mbps customers but the customers will be refrained from getting new improvised service. Such act is ultimately dividing the NBN users as one class promise to deliver minimum 2Mbps of CVC capacity while the second class gives no assurance to deliver even minimum set of CVCs during peak evening hours.
New set of prices is all set to discourage retail service provider from selling more of 12Mbps and make 50 Mbps the new default standard service on its network. NBN network has more than one million of 12Mbps users, so the users willing to explore better network performance must upgrade their existing network. Existing users of 12Mbps and 25 Mbps users are getting indirect benefit from CVC bonus offer which was launched in December 2017, the offer is soon to expire on October 2018.
The bonus was launched to mainly attract new customers to NBN network and to shift the users from 12Mbps to 50 Mbps network after the expiry of bonus scheme.
