The revised document has been submitted by Telstra - following the initial submission then revision last year - to the ACCC following a number of points of issue being raised following continual meetings with both the public and the ACCC.
'I am pleased the ACCC has acknowledged that their concerns have been addressed and I note their commitment to consider the SSU promptly,' Telstra CEO David Thodey said in a statement today.
The approval of the structural separation of Telstra is the last thing standing between a sign-off on the deal between Telstra and the body responsible for the roll-out of Australia's new high-speed network, NBN Co.
As part of the deal, Telstra must structurally separate wholesale from retail divisions - and this must be approved before the deal between NBN Co and Telstra for the long-term lease of Telstra's infrastructure such as ducts and piping can be finalised.
However Telstra says it believes the changes made to the revised proposal are largely non-material, and don't require re-approval from shareholders, saying today that it believes the changes 'do not constitute material change in the context of the Proposed Transaction approved by Telstra shareholders in October 2011.'
