3 August 2012: The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has issued a consultation paper on the draft section 151DB list of points of interconnection (POI) to the National Broadband Network.
“The points of interconnection are important for ensuring that retail service providers can connect to the National Broadband Network to provide services to their customers,” ACCC chairman Rod Sims said.
“This is the first time the section 151DB list of points of interconnection has been made, so the ACCC considers that it is appropriate to seek stakeholder comments on the list,” Mr Sims said.
The ACCC and NBN Co have previously agreed (during the POI consultation process undertaken in 2010) on the locations to be used as the 121 points of interconnection to the NBN. Under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA), the ACCC is required to publish a list setting out the points of interconnection to the National Broadband Network (the Listed POIs).
