ACCC rejects NBN Co's SAU variation proposal

Wednesday 29 March 2017 | 08:18 CET | News
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has issued a draft decision to reject NBN Co's proposed variation to its Special Access Undertaking (SAU) to incorporate new technologies such as fibre-to-the-node (FTTN), fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) and hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC). NBN Co's SAU is a key part of the framework for regulating prices and a range of non-price matters relating to NBN Co's supply of wholesale services until 2040. The current version of the SAU, which the ACCC accepted in 2013, only covers fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP), fixed wireless, and satellite technologies.
