On 26 March 2020 Telstra advised the ACCC that it considered the COVID-19 pandemic to be a Force Majeure Event under the Migration Plan.
Telstra will as a consequence of the Force Majeure Event implement a moratorium on managed disconnection activities nationally under the Migration Plan until at least 30 June 2020.
The ACCC agrees that the COVID-19 pandemic constitutes a Force Majeure Event under the Migration Plan.
Telstra will not contravene the Migration Plan to the extent that the COVID-19 pandemic causes delays or failure to perform Telstra's obligations under the Migration Plan.
Telstra is required to notify the ACCC as soon as reasonably practicable after the Force Majeure Event has ceased to affect its Migration Plan obligations.
