You may not have the National Broadband Network where you live yet, but you’ll have more options to grab the NBN next year.
Australia’s nationwide broadband network may well be taking its time to roll out across the country, but come next year, customers with the NBN will certainly get their choice of how they connect.
Now that one low-cost mobile provider has decided to sink its teeth into reselling the National Broadband Network, another has stepped up.
One month after Amaysim announced it would be selling the NBN to customers, Kogan has announced that it will follow suit, entering into a partnership with Vodafone, which will also be providing access to the NBN some time this year.
“We are proud of the partnership between Kogan.com and Vodafone which represents the coming together of two challenger brands to deliver value and choice for consumers,” said David Shafer, Executive Director of Kogan.com.
“We’re thrilled to now extend our partnership with Vodafone to enable Kogan.com to offer great new services in mobile broadband and fixed-line NBN at the incredibly low prices that Aussies have come to expect from Kogan.com,” he said.
One thing hasn’t been announced, and that’s pricing, but given that we’re not expecting to see Kogan’s NBN access until next year, we’re not shocked. That means you can expect to see pricing either late this year or early next, with possible price wars kicking in for the NBN, as Kogan takes on other budget players like Amaysim.
