There are a number of fixed networks delivering superfast broadband services (capable of delivering greater than 25Mbps download speeds). In October the ACCC consulted about the pricing and terms and conditions that should apply to some of these networks, such as Opticomm, OPENetworks, LBN Co, Telstra South Brisbane and TPGs FTTB networks. The price and terms for NBN are set out under different documents, called the Special Access Undertaking.

Consumers regularly express frustration about not being able to access the range of offers available in the market over such networks. ACCAN believes that this regulation could have an important role in the level of retail competition that exists over these networks and should focus on encouraging choice and quality of services for consumers.
