TPG puts FTTB plan back on sale

Offers $70 monthly bundle.

TPG has put an NBN rival fibre-to-the-basement plan back on sale after being forced to stop taking new orders following the introduction of new carrier license conditions.

The federal government introduced new conditions for providers like TPG last year, requiring them to open their FTTB networks to others for wholesale use by January 1, and structurally separate their retail and wholesale businesses by July 1.

In early January TPG pulled its FTTB plans from sale after claiming it did not have enough time to meet the first of the new requirements.

It said it would be unable to take new orders until it had completed the required changes, but at the time did not provide a timeframe.

The internet service provider this week began relisting a single FTTB + home phone bundle for $70 a month on an 18 month plan.

The offering includes unlimited data, unlimited local and national calls, and 100 minutes of international calls. It boasts download speeds of up to 100Mbps and median upload speeds of 20Mbps.

TPG chief operating officer Craig Levy confirmed to iTnews the ISP had opened its FTTB network to wholesale customers, as per the Government's license condition.

TPG emphasised that the service is only available to selected buildings - the ISP is currently rolling out fibre to the basements of 500,000 apartment complexes across metropolitan Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth.
