Nearly a year after it took a 25 percent stake in broadband retailer More, the Commonwealth Bank is using NBN services as a sweetener to lure customers.
CBA will offer pre-approved home loan customers three years of free NBN services, which it said in a statement could save eligible customers more than $2700.
Existing customers are offered 30 percent off More NBN plans for a year, if they sign up using debit or credit cards to pay.
CBA says its research showed one-third of customers expecting interest rate rises will be on the lookout for cheap utility and service offers to offset higher mortgage payments.
More co-founder Andrew Branson said the offer will also mean customers can take possession of their property with the NBN already connected.
As well as taking a stake in More, CBA last July bought 25 percent of Tangerine, with a view to using the brands to deliver personalised broadband offers through its CommBank app.
