Telcos could walk out on ‘inflexible’ NBN, iiNet warns

NBN Co will be abandoned by the telecommunications industry unless it gets its act together and lowers wholesale prices charged to telcos.

"With [being a utility] comes a level of inflexibility." But he also said Mr Dalby's statement - that telcos held the advantage - was entirely correct.

NBN Co spokesman said the company was working with the ACCC and the industry for the best interests of families and businesses across Australia .

"Without the work of service providers marketing NBN plans, it's actually very hard to get take-up," he said.

"If we can't get these commercial agreements bedded down, when the fibre service areas are completed and we start shutting down copper, there is potential for either a lot of disruption or service providers putting customers on with anger in their hearts."
