The ACCC has released a discussion paper inviting comment on four measures developed by Telstra under its migration plan. Telstra requires the ACCC's approval of these measures. The measures are designed to:

  • provide appropriate protections to consumers and competition during the migration from Telstra’s copper and HFC networks to the NBN; and
  • set out how Telstra will secure confidential information provided to it by NBN Co.

The ACCC also seeks comments on the processes Telstra will follow when disconnecting services from its copper and HFC networks, which will occur 18 months after NBN Co declares a region 'ready for service'.

The ACCC is seeking submissions by Friday 14 December 2012.
