On 15 September 2016, the ACCC released a discussion paper to start consultations on the combined SBAS/LBAS Final Access Determination (FAD) public inquiry.
The discussion paper seeks submissions on a range of issues relevant to the combined inquiry including:
- options for determining LBAS and SBAS prices
- the compliance costs of supplying an LBAS or SBAS and the potential option of exempting some carriers from the requirement to provide these services, and
- the differential treatment of Telstra’s Fibre Access Broadband service to other superfast broadband services.
Submissions closed on 21 October 2016.
