Huge ADSL price drops from Telstra cause commotion for wholesale customers

Once again, the monopoly shines

| Networking News | Posted: Jul 26, 2010 11:24 am

Yesterday Telstra announced a huge 50% price cut on its top-speed 200GB a month ADSL plan, taking a dive from $179.95 down to just $89.95. Great news, right? - For us, hell'ye! - For the competition still paying premium wholesale rates to Telstra for their network? - Certainly not.

Both Internode and iiNet have made it clear they're not happy about the cut as Telstra continue to charge the same rates to its wholesale customers, of which are higher than what Telstra is now offering to its own customer base, making it impossible for the likes of iiNet, Optus and others to hand similarly competitive pricing down to its customers.

 

A spokesperson for Internode has stated this morning that the company plans to make a complaint on Telstra prices to the ACCC.
