ACCC suspends assessment of NBN Co special access undertaking

20 June 2012:  The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is suspending its assessment of the Special Access Undertaking (SAU) lodged by NBN Co in the expectation that NBN Co will soon lodge a revised undertaking.

NBN Co lodged the SAU for assessment by the ACCC on 5 December 2011, setting out a proposed framework for access to NBN Co’s fibre, wireless and satellite networks.  The ACCC has subsequently undertaken significant consultation with stakeholders regarding NBN Co’s proposals.

NBN Co has recently indicated to the ACCC that it intends to submit an amended SAU.  NBN Co has provided an outline of its proposed amendments to the ACCC, and is in the process of developing this into a detailed undertaking. This outline will be published on the ACCC website.
