Preparation for Telstra Corporation of international comparisons of wholesale broadband prices, Australia, 2019-2022
In 2019, Telstra engaged Link Economics to prepare an international comparison of wholesale broadband prices, including Fibre-to the-Premise (FTTP), Fibre-to-the-Node (FTTN) and Hybrid Fibre Coax (HFC). In preparing the study, Link Economics researched regulatory approaches, wholesale product specifications, and the structures and levels of pricing applied to broadband services in a sample of countries. Telstra used the report to successfully lobby for lower wholesale prices to support increased broadband uptake and sustainable retail competition.
Link Economics updated the price comparisons for Telstra in 2020 and 2022.
