NBN Co has signed 27 wholesale customers, including Telstra and Optus, to a Wholesale Broadband Agreement.
The new WBA will take effect March 1. However, iiNet and its subsidiary brands including Internode, Adam Internet and Westnet are notably missing from the agreement.
NBN Co’s Head of Regulatory Affairs and Industry Analysis, Caroline Lovell said the new WBA was achieved after two years of engagement with industry to develop terms of supply of NBN Co fibre-to-the-premises and wireless based services, and follows the ACCC’s acceptance of NBN Co’s Special Access Undertaking.
“Significant progress has been made in the development and execution of NBN Co’s new supply arrangements and NBN Co thanks customers for their engagement in relation to the new WBA.”
“NBN Co will continue to engage with industry in 2014 as we implement the new WBA and work to further develop its terms in light of ongoing operational experience.
“NBN Co also looks forward to working with industry to develop supply terms that may be required for the delivery of services using additional technology.”
