CNT Corp Pty Ltd has paid a total of $19,800 on three infringement notices issued by the ACCC for its conduct in offering and charging for wholesale fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband internet services at data transfer rates its network could not support.
Between July 2011 and April 2012, CNT Corp had represented that it could supply wholesale FTTP broadband internet services with downstream data transfer rates of 25,50 and 100 megabits per second in the Eden Brook housing estate in Victoria. CNT Corp had also represented that its network had backhaul transmission capacity of 100 megabits per second when this was not the case. CNT Corp's network could not support data transfer rates above 20 megabits per second for a single user.
CNT Corp has provided the ACCC with a court enforceable undertaking to acquire additional backhaul transmission capacity for its Eden Brook network, provide affected customers with credit vouchers redeemable for broadband services and implement a trade practices compliance program.
