This will include two satellites for rural Australia which have not been costed.
The cost to wholesalers will be $24 a connection per month per user.
The basic plan will offer download speeds of 12 megabits per second and upload speeds of one megabit per second.
”NBN Co’s expected internal rate of return is 7.0 per cent,” documents provided to reporters by the company show.
