On 27 May 2016, NBN Co lodged a proposed variation to its Special Access Undertaking (SAU) with the ACCC. The Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA) allows NBN Co to give the ACCC a variation to an SAU already in operation. The ACCC accepted NBN Co’s current SAU on 13 December 2013, following an extensive consultation process.
The main purpose of NBN Co’s SAU variation is to update the SAU to incorporate additional technologies (fibre-to-the-node, fibre-to-the-basement and hybrid fibre-coaxial) into the SAU. The SAU does not currently reflect these technologies.
