NBN has a plan to end CVC charge – pay it more money elsewhere!

Every NBN reseller's old enemy, CVC, could be on the chopping block as a new alterative fee structure gets offered up. Will it fly?

NBN has a plan to end CVC charge – pay it more money elsewhere!

The National Broadband Network has suggested the first major overhaul to how its pricing is structured for resellers, with the existing price structure an eternal point of argument due to the Connectivity Virtual Circuit (CVC) charge which puts excess charges for data consumption onto resellers with no real association to the cost of providing the service.

So NBN has tabled a new proposed pricing scheme that removes CVC while increasing base charges, with indexed increases in charges at rates above annual inflation.

That's a big catch, and major telcos are cautiously considering the proposal, with the clear concern that a new method of enforcing the same or greater pricing is still far from ideal.
