Operational separation of Telstra

Project overview

Industry: 
Type: 
Status: 

Prior to the commencement of the Structural Separation Undertaking (SSU), Telstra was subject to an operational separation framework which was intended to promote equivalence between Telstra wholesale and retail customers. 

The ACCC has previously publicly stated that the operational separation regime, and the ACCC’s limited role in investigating and reporting matters to the Minister, was largely ineffective in addressing Telstra’s ability and incentive to discriminate against its competitors.
