    The competition in the keyword planner is referring to Advertiser comptition - how popular the keyword is in relation to bidding for ads.

    yes as said above the competition indicator is for adwords advertising not seo, use keywordrevealer, moz keyword difficulty tool to take a look at seo competition

    I'm surprised it's low PPC comp tho, I would have thought it sky high.

    MOZ now running with the BING, so you can't get exactly what the kw competition is all about. Either try keywordrevealer or ultimate niche finder.

    It's good that you mentioned that the competition is in relation to bidding on the ads and not search competition. Many people mistakenly believe that the estimated competition shown in the keyword planner is the competition of the keyword on the SERPs.
