The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has today issued its report on potential competition issues raised by commercial agreements between Telstra and NBN Co relating to Telstra’s role in building parts of the National Broadband Network (NBN).
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission Chairman Rod Sims announced at the ACCC/AER Regulatory Conference dinner that the ACCC’s next market study will focus on the Australian communications sector.
The market study will examine a wide range of issues concerning competition and efficiency in communications markets and will involve consultation with industry participants and consumers.
Mr Sims said Australia is witnessing a significant change in the way communications occur.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has today released its quarterly National Broadband Network (NBN) Wholesale Market Indicators Report for the period ending 30 June 2016.
The report provides a detailed view of the size and structure of emerging wholesale access markets as the NBN roll out continues.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has decided to regulate access to wholesale superfast broadband services and today declared a five-year ‘superfast broadband access service’ (SBAS).
The SBAS declaration allows retailers to access non-NBN network services with a downstream data rate normally more than 25 Mbps. This includes the fibre-to-the-basement (FTTB) network operated by TPG subsidiary AAPT, and Telstra’s fibre networks in South Brisbane and Velocity estates.
