NBN New Development Charge Waived

Has anyone had any luck waiving this $300 charge for a new property?
I haven't been able to find anything.
However I spoke to NBN just now and she insisted there are a couple of providers who do not pass this charge on to customers. She wouldn't tell me who due to needing to remain impartial…
Cheers

Update: Called around a few and couldn't find any who would waive. However my existing provider Telstra gave me a $200 credit (with some pushing)

    As somneone who used to sell NBN and then went on to work for NBN co for a (very) short time i can tell you that NBN co will never waive this fee.
    It is 100% up to the RSP and from what i experienced it is never waived, the RSP is not likley to cover this fee when their margins on NBN are already super slim.

    Good Luck though :)

    They waive for me for been a customer for 10+ years.

    i've only heard of one time where ABB credited a customer $300 onto their account (after they signed up with them). I heard there was a heap of problems before, which resulted in the credit

    I managed to get Telstra to waive it but this was a long time ago - perhaps 2015, I can't remember?

    Telstra can waive it if you sign up to a contract but see if they can do it without one, majority of RSPs will charge you it. Maybe check Belong as well.
