The ACCC has revised its decision on access pricing, saying wholesalers should be paying more than 9.6 percent less to Telstra.
Whilst ACCC chair Rod Sims expects the savings to be passed on to consumers, CommsDay’s Kevin Morgan says it will simply see the margins passed to Telstra’s competitors who, he says, are already madding a tidy profit from ULL services.
Whatever your take, the issue is relatively short lived as consumers move over to the NBN. Then, the more important consideration will be the cost of backhaul. The ACCC are giving careful consideration on the cost of these services, with John Lindsay saying the outcome will impact all service providers and the future viability of the NBN. That’s all!
