A new report by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) provides an update on NBN wholesale access markets as of 30 June 2016.
The NBN Wholesale Market Indicators Report details the number of the wholesale access services acquired over the NBN and provides a detailed view of the size and structure of emerging wholesale access markets as the NBN roll out continues.
“The ACCC’s report provides an update on NBN’s current access technologies, including the newer NBN access technologies of fiber-to-the-building (FTTB) and fiber-to-the-node (FTTN),” ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said.
“Future reports will also include data on NBN’s (Hybrid fiber-coaxial) HFC services. Over time, we expect these quarterly reports will provide information on trends related to the take up of various NBN services and provide an overview of the wholesale market.”
Key points from the report include:
- As of 30 June 2016, nbn was supplying 1,136,346 wholesale access services and had been contracted to supply 1,235 gigabits per second of aggregate network capacity (Connectivity Virtual Circuits), up from 941,235 services and 1,004 gigabits per second as at 30 March 2016
- Telstra was the largest acquirer of wholesale access services on a national basis. The majority of the remaining access services were acquired by the TPG Group, Singtel Optus and Vocus
- Other carriers also acquired NBN wholesale access services, but only met the reporting threshold of a five percentage point market share in respect of wireless and satellite services.
