Extension of existing fixed line services and the wholesale ADSL service FADs
On 16 April 2014, the ACCC decided to extend the existing the final access determinations (FADs) for the declared fixed line services (LCS, WLR, LSS, ULLS, PSTN OA (FOAS as of 1 August 2014), PSTN TA (FTAS as of August 1 2014) and the wholesale ADSL service. The ACCC is extending these FADs as it will not be in a position to make the new fixed line services and the wholesale ADSL service FADs prior to their expiration.
The existing declared fixed line services FADs and the wholesale ADSL service FAD are set to expire on 30 June 2014.
The final access determination (FAD) instrument as placed on the register on 29 May 2013 originally included a cover sheet which contained a typographical error. The page stated that the ACCC ‘makes this final access determination under section 152BCG of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.’ This should have stated ‘makes this final access determination under section 152BC of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.’
On 5 June 2013, the ACCC amended the WADSL FAD instrument to correct the error.
