Rule 12 of the RKR provides the ACCC with the ability to extend the RKR by giving written notice to NBN Co.
Following NBN Co’s release of new access services, the ACCC has provided written notice to NBN Co to extend the RKR on:
- 12 February 2015 to cover the commercial launch of NBN Co’s Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) network access services
- 20 October 2015 to cover the commercial launch of NBN Co’s Fibre-to-the-Node (FTTN) network access services
- 4 July 2016 to cover the commercial launch of NBN Co’s Satellite network and Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) network access services.
Prior to these extensions of the RKR, NBN Co was only required to maintain records in relation to Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP), fixed wireless and interim satellite services.
Extension of the RKR to capture new access services or products as they are launched commercially by NBN Co will ensure that the same information is obtained for each new service or product.
