Telstra CEO Andy Penn has used a National Press Club speech to call for NBN Co to reduce the wholesale prices that it charges for accessing the national broadband network. He argued that the current wholesale prices means it is not profitable for telcos to resell NBN services, and that reducing these charges would encourage investment in the sector. However, Andrew Sheridan of Optus argues that the high wholesale prices are at least partly due to NBN Co’s ongoing payments to Telstra. Vodafone CEO Inaki Berroeta agrees with his comments.
