NBN 10Gbps Enterprise Services Set to Launch by the End of June

Starting from the end of June this year, NBN RSPs will be able to offer Enterprise Ethernet services with speeds up to 10Gbps.

 

The trial for this commenced during the first quarter of this year. The trial encompassed the testing and evaluation of the performance of the services which includes information rate and associated frame size, as well as the deployment of a business NTD equipped with the 10Gbps port.

 

This week, NBN Co officially provided various RSPs with details of the new speed tiers. Currently, Enterprise Ethernet is limited to maximum speeds of 1Gbps. However, the changes will make 2-10Gbps services available from 30 June. The speed increments to be ordered will be in 1Gbps.

 

For a 2Gbps symmetrical service which is rated as class-of-service low, OVC charges will begin at $1000 and go up to $5000 for 10Gbps. Cos-M and CoS-H are said to be more expensive. In this case, the 10Gbps OVC charges will top out at $6300 and $7600 respectively.

 

Nevertheless, the existing OVC discount regime for Enterprise Ethernet includes the new speed tiers. This discount regime runs until mid-September 2023. This means that a CoS-L 2Gbps service will only cost $650 while a CoS-L 10Gbps service will only be priced at $1371.

 

NBN Co is also embarking on a year-long promotion to mark the launch. The company is also offering to waive the charge of a standard installation for the order of a service with a bandwidth profile greater than 1Gbps. This promotion will run for a year.

 

In addition to this, NBN Co is also withdrawing its existing high-bandwidth Enterprise Ethernet discount. This discount scheme covered the acquisition by an RSP of aggregate OVC CoS-H bandwidth profiles to effectively provide 3Gbps or 4Gbps to the same end-user business.

 

In a separate notification, NBN Co announced to RSPs that it will also

waive Enterprise Ethernet service termination charges for premises that have been badly hit by flooding.

 

A letter from NBN Co stated that “As a result of the recent national disaster, with widespread flooding across the east coast of Australia in particular, there may be some premises that have been condemned and/or are no longer inhabitable”. 

 

“We understand that in these difficult circumstances an end-user customer may wish to terminate their NBN service.”

 

However, the waiver is subject to the telco evaluating whether the premises is condemned or uninhabitable for a period of more than six months due to the flooding between February and April this year.
