New Zealand - Leaks about the faster broadband network reveal wholesale prices

[NZ herald] Leaked documents show that New Zealand's new ultra-fast broadband network will come with a variety of options and moderate prices, with connections starting at an estimated $47 a month.

The Herald has obtained a "price book" revealing the wholesale charges set by the Government agency in charge of the UFB, Crown Fibre Holdings.

The wholesale charges are for the Local Fibre Companies bidding on UFB contracts around the country, and will be set at different levels for the next ten years.

While retail costs for UFB plans remain unclear as of now, they can be estimated by adding an 18 per cent retail margin as defined by the Commerce Commission previously, and GST.
