The ACCC has released a discussion paper on Telstra’s proposed variation to the Migration Plan.
Telstra’s proposed variation includes changes to:
- provide additional time for premises with an NBN order to be connected before mandatory disconnection occurs
- amend the regime for the migration of Special Services (business grade services) to accommodate the move to a multi-technology NBN
- incorporate a number of interim migration and disconnection arrangements recently adopted by Telstra and NBN Co with the ACCC’s consent.
The ACCC’s consideration of the proposed variation is limited to whether or not the Migration Plan, as varied, complies with the Migration Plan Principles issued by the Australian Government in 2015.
The ACCC is undertaking a public consultation on the proposed variation for 28 days and is seeking feedback from interested parties on any competition or consumer issues which may arise as a result of the proposal.
Interested parties are invited to make written submissions by 5pm on Monday 20 June 2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
