The ACCC has decided to extend the period to make the superfast broadband access service (SBAS) final access determination for a period of six months, until 19 July 2023.
The ACCC is unable to complete its inquiry within the current decision-making period of 19 January 2023. It considers that additional time is needed to consult on proposals raised in its draft decision on the access determination. The ACCC is seeking submissions on its draft decision by 9 December 2022.
The ACCC intends to publish an exposure draft of the access determination instrument in 2023 before making a final decision. This will give stakeholders an opportunity to comment on the specific price & non-price terms that will apply.
The ACCC anticipates releasing its final decision in 2023.
