Harbour ISP first to launch NBN Co’s new wholesale bundle



New 50Mbps nbn™ retail plan to create gigantic improvement in end user broadband experience

Harbour ISP today launched its new nbn™ residential fibre plan, providing its customers with a higher internet broadband performance at current pricing levels. Harbour ISP is the first RSP (retail service provider) to go live with the new wholesale service, which is based on NBN Co’s new nbn™ 50 wholesale bundle.

“This will see a gigantic improvement in end user experience for all nbn fibre customers, with the vast majority migrated to these bundle products over time as NBN Co tweaks its pricing models to ensure they are the only viable option for RSPs,” said Charles Tym, Director, Harbour ISP.

From today, existing Harbour ISP customers connecting via NBN Co’s Coffs Harbour and Dubbo POIs (Points of Interconnect – see nbnco.com.au for more information on POIs) are being automatically upgraded from 25/5 Mbps to 50/20 Mbps under its Standard nbn™ fibre plan. New customers in the NSW regions covered by the Coffs Harbour and Dubbo POIs can sign up to the new Standard plan for $59 a month with 250GB data included, and an additional $10 a month for unlimited data. This represents a $20 saving per month on the equivalent plan under NBN Co’s former wholesale bundle.  Harbour ISP will also shortly roll out the same offer to customers across NBN Co’s national POI network.

“Today is the most important day for the nbn since Senator Conroy first announced the original project, with NBN Co starting the delivery of its new wholesale bundles. The new bundle combines into a single product and fee both the tail – or access – and network capacity elements of an nbn service. Customers are for the first time ensured a quality user experience because they are guaranteed a minimum and adequate amount of bandwidth,” said Tym.

Harbour ISP has been at the forefront of nbn™ innovation since the network was launched in 2011. Harbour ISP connected the first ever customer to the NBN Interim Satellite Service and was the first ISP to receive an invoice from NBN Co. Harbour ISP’s close relationship with nbn™ continued with the launch of the Sky Muster™ satellites in 2015, designed to provide fast broadband internet access to regional and remote areas, with Harbour ISP currently the third-largest provider of satellite connections.
