Telstra Seeks NBN Reprieve
0Overall Score

Telstra has asked the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to free it from having to provide wholesale voice services to competitors in National Broadband Network (NBN) greenfield sites.
The ACCC is seeking comment from industry and the public on whether a one-year exemption from the obligation should be allowed, as Telstra is still working on wholesale voice products to provide over NBN fibre.

Under the current universal service obligations, Telstra is obliged to connect up new housing estates with less than 100 premises, and is generally doing so with copper. But for estates with more than 100, NBN Co will connect fibre to the premises.
