The Senate Environment and Communications Legislation Committee recently sought feedback on the Telstra Corporation and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2021. This Bill proposed amendments to different pieces of legislation to ensure that key regulatory obligations continue to apply to Telstra after its restructure.

In our response to this inquiry, ACCAN welcomed the Bill as it ensures that important consumer safeguards that currently apply to Telstra will continue to apply to the restructured Telstra companies. This includes things like the Universal Service Obligation, Consumer Service Guarantee and Network Reliability Framework arrangements, and Telstra’s obligation to provide Priority Assistance.
