Telstra's Migration Plan

Additional extension of regulatory forbearance (disconnections of non-serviceable premises)20 September 2019

On 17 September 2019 Telstra requested a further extension of regulatory forbearance from existing disconnection requirements for non-serviceable premises.

The proposed variation will provide additional time for NBN Co to make premises serviceable prior to the commencement of managed disconnections.

On 20 September 2019 the ACCC agreed to Telstra’s request for extension of forbearance on the basis that it will promote service continuity and on the condition that Telstra submits a formal variation to the Migration Plan as soon as practical. The ACCC will consider the variation in accordance with the Migration Plan principles and consult publicly when Telstra submits the proposed variation.
