Fastel offers discounted residential NBN access services

Services available for six months at half price

Queensland Internet service provider, Fastel, will offer discounted residential NBN access services following NBN Co’s move to provide a migration incentive for retail service providers.

Every residential fibre access application, accepted by Fastel between February 15 and May 30, will receive the first six months of monthly fees for half price if the end user is committed to a 12-month contract.

However, plan upgrades are allowed once a month, while plan downgrades are not permitted.

Fastel director, Frank Buijk, said the company decided to forward the incentive to the end user market as the offer from NBN Co. is restricted to only the retail service provider and not the end user.

It also only applies to certain Brownfield areas, excluding Greenfield areas and other Brownfield areas from the incentive.

Buijk said the company brings an offering to the market which differentiates its company from the other retail service providers.

“Our promotion applies to all NBN-enabled fibre areas in Queensland regardless if they are Brown- or Greenfields," he said.

“The combination of our promotions, the high shaping speeds and the fact that uploads are not calculated in the data allowance are making a switch to the NBN fibre access network affordable for everybody."

My understanding is that NBNCo is offering a flat amount per customer to RSPs. Fastel has chosen to translate that into half price for everyone. I suspect that if it had instead offered a flat amount off for every customer that would reduce the price of the slower speed plans to so low a price that a lot more people would sign up. Then those who wanted faster could upgrade.
