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."
