UFB price changes by reference to CPI from 1 October 2020

On 6 July, after consulting with you, we announced our decision to proceed with the UFB price changes by reference to CPI from 1 October 2020.

What’s happening

In the next month our pricing will be updated to reflect all UFB services other than those we’d previously indicated would be out of scope, namely:

  • Hyperfibre
  • Fibre Max (Gig) – Consumer Max 500 2.5-2.5 and SME Max 500 2.5-2.5
  • Small Business Fibre
  • Tail Extension Service (TES)
  • Enhanced Bitstream 4 – a 2.5% CPI increase will be applied to the 100Mbps access price only (i.e. no increase to 1G access price or bandwidth prices). There was a reduction in bandwidth pricing for Enhanced Bitstream 4.
  • HSNS – a 2.5% CPI increase will be applied to the 100Mbps and 1G access prices only (i.e. no increase to bandwidth prices).

You can check out a full list of the fibre services to which these price changes will be applied here.

It is important to note there will be no backdating of these price increases to 1 July 2020.
