About the telecommunications registers

The registers contain a public record of certain telecommunications information.

The ACCC is responsible for the economic regulation of the telecommunications sector. This includes the National Broadband Network (NBN), non-NBN networks and certain mobile services.

We promote competition and allow access to essential infrastructure. Our work protects consumers in this sector and corrects market failure. We:

  • assess and enforce terms of access to the NBN in a special access undertaking (SAU) from NBN Co
  • monitor compliance with Telstra’s structural separation undertaking (SSU) and the plan to migrate Telstra’s customers to the NBN
  • set wholesale prices and wholesale terms of access for declared services
  • track and report on prices and competition in the communications sector, and
  • investigate claims of anti-competitive conduct in the communications sector.
