I don't know if that is certain. It may be that NBN ends up with a
price for 1-50 connections, 51-500, 501-5000 and 5000+ (for example).
That would still be offering the same price to all parties, but on the
basis they purchase the same number of links, and volume based
discounting is normal in telco.
Certainly, I think there will be disincentives to small operators
buying from the NBN directly, as the access seeker stuff I have seen
presumes a pretty sophisticated level of back-end systems for
provisioning/billing/support etc.
