NBN Co will not reach ARPU target even in FY22 Featured

By

NBN Co, the company rolling out Australia’s national broadband network, the NBN, will not achieve its desired $52 average revenue per user target to remove the red ink from its budget, even by FY22, two years after the rollout is completed in 2020.

According to the company's corporate plan for 2019-2022, which was released on Friday, the ARPU is expected to grow from $44 at present to $51 by FY22, a dollar short of what it needs to break even.

In last year's corporate plan, which spanned the years 2018 to 2021, NBN Co had said its ARPU would be at $52 in 2021.

Details about the ARPU were buried deep in the corporate plan statement, on page 60 of an 86-page report. No mention was made of ARPU in the slides, that were sent separately to the media by the company, or in its media release.

"Monthly Average Revenue per User (ARPU) is expected to grow from $44 to $51 in FY22, stimulated by an expected increase in end-user willingness to pay, increase in end-user take-up of plans based on higher wholesale speed tiers, increased end-user data consumption, and increased penetration into small to medium business segments," the plan states.

As far as other financial forecasts are concerned, the company said it would achieve annual revenue of $2.6 billion by FY19, $3.9 billion by FY20 and $5.2 billion by FY21.

This was predicted based on an expectation that revenue would rise by 30% in FY19 and 50% in FY20.
