iiNet, Internode double-team Telstra on South Brisbane

National broadband providers iiNet and Internode have joined forces to escalate their ongoing complaints about Telstra’s fibre rollout project in South Brisbane, filing a joint submission with the competition regulator demanding that Telstra’s wholesale fibre services in the area be subject to regulation as the previous copper services were.

Telstra has chosen to replace the copper connections to about 20,000 premises in the region as its South Brisbane telephone exchange — where the copper cables terminate — is being closed in order to make way for the new Queensland Children’s Hospital in the area. The region is one of the first in Australia to receive fibre services to the home — but is not part of the Federal Government’s flagship National Broadband Network project, although the long-term plan is for the infrastructure to become part of the NBN.

The first customers recently went live on the network — including customers of ISPs who had gained wholesale access to the network.
