    1. 1. 1 Breaking the NBN Co Wholesale Access Monopoly CREATING A NEW LEGISLATIVE AND BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT TO CATER FOR MULTIPLE WHOLESALE ACCESS CARRIERS PHIL SMITH Chief Regulatory Officer
    2. 2. 2 Telecommunications Legislation The Government is looking at creating a level playing field so that the private sector has greater opportunities to build and operate telecommunications networks in new developments, either in their own right or on behalf of NBN Co. Malcolm Turnbull March 2014  
    3. 3. 3 Legislative Environment Since the inception of NBN changes to the rollout methodology have impacted developers: • Developers required to design, build and warrant pit and pipe (“fibre-ready”) • Choice of FTTP Provider • NBN Co – carrier of last resort • NBN Co’s Timeframes in Developer Agreement is “best endeavours” • NBN is still only delivering residential wholesale Internet and telephony services • Still confusion over <100 and >100 lot developments
    4. 4. 4  Strategic Review – released December 2013 “… greenfields deployment is 7 percent behind Corporate Plan ... “ “… greenfields has been negatively impacted by the delays in the brownfields … ” “… greenfields policy … distracts design and construction resources, delays the broader NBN Co rollout schedule …” Current NBN Review Process
    5. 5. 5  Strategic Review – continued  NBN Co could advise the developer of NBN Co's scheduled rollout date  fixed line services within set time frames,  voice services could be provided in the interim under Telstra's Universal Service Obligation (USO)  NBN Co could then provide broadband in these areas as part of the general rollout”  “NBN Co could pay the developer a fixed subsidy  build the network to NBN Co's specification then transfer the network back to NBN Co to operate Current NBN Review Process

    7. 7. 7 Veritigan Committee ACCC Submission:  “… there should be no restrictions on the ability of NBN Co or another network operator to deploy networks in new developments, including in competition with each other ...”  “… non-NBN Co network provider, structural separation and constraint on the exercise of market power by this provider is necessary …”  “… the policies and legislation for deciding which provider should deploy infrastructure in a new development should be clear and unambiguous …”  If there is uncertainty … this could lead to rollout delays or inefficient duplication.” Current NBN Review Process
    8. 8. 8 Vertigan Committee Communications Alliance Submission:  ensure a level playing field  enable the deployment of infrastructure that is fit-for- purpose, cost-effective and responsive to end-user needs  All FTTP providers, including NBN Co, should be responsible for the design and construction of pit and pipe  The engagement of proven private FTTP providers has the potential to deliver a more cost-effective solution within the timeframes that developers demand Current NBN Review Process
    9. 9. 9 Vertigan Committee Telstra Submission:  It is a policy decision … whether to move away from the current approach where responsibility is shared between Telstra and NBN Co in new developments  … facilities-based competition for new developments will not be economically feasible for third parties unless either developers are required to fund the full costs of the infrastructure (not just pit and pipe, as currently is the case) or subsidy is available (which should be available to any qualified third party operator) …  … a framework for co-operation between NBN Co and third party builders to reduce confusion about who (or whether anyone) is proposing to build infrastructure in a new estate: for example, a nationwide clearinghouse to process developer requests … Current NBN Review Process
    10. 10. 10  There needs to be change, especially for Greenfield Developments  Industry and Government support of non-NBN Co providers  Government and industry support of cost recovery  New models of facilitating non-NBN Co providers to work with Retail Service Providers are required Conclusions
