Superfast Broadband Access Services (SBAS) are networks that provide broadband that is capable of achieving 25Mbps or greater download speeds. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is inquiring whether there is a case to regulate these networks. Premises served by one network can limit consumers' services and number of providers.

ACCAN supports the proposed declaration of these networks. Declaring these networks is likely to remove barriers for retail providers to access networks. This in turn is likely to provide a greater range of services and products that better suit the needs of consumers. ACCAN believes that networks which support retail competition are in the long term interest of consumers.
