Vodafone, which recently begun selling NBN connections, has cut the cost of its 50 megabits-per-second NBN package from $95 to $70 a month.

It has picked up on the recent announcement from NBN Co that it will sell 50Mbps connections to telcos for the price of current 25Mbps connections, which it wholesales for between $27 and $30 a month.

Vodafone’s move follows an announcement by rival TPG that it would remove a 25Mbps plan that it had been selling for $70 a month and offer a 50Mbps service for the same price.

The moves come as NBN Co seeks to answer widespread suggestions that it has been encouraging the take-up of the lowest cost – and slowest – connections, rather than the higher speeds of which the NBN rollout is capable.
