The Determination is the last of a suite of five regulatory instruments designed to further improve the migration experience of consumers moving onto the NBN, as reported by iTWire.
John Stanton, Communications Alliance chief executive, said: "Industry has worked closely with the ACMA on the development of the new Determination and the Service Continuity Standard.
"We are pleased that the ACMA took on board a range of industry’s suggestions to enhance the consumer safeguards afforded by the instruments and making them more workable."
"The Determination provides rules for service providers to offer interim services or alternative arrangements where fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) or fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC) services have experienced initial connection issues.
"The new instrument also sees providers of NBN services to perform certain line capability tests after a service has been moved to the NBN."
Stanton added: “While we are pleased with overall instrument, challenges remain in terms of the short implementation timeframes. Smaller providers, who may not be readily able to provide mobile interim services, are also likely to face challenges to comply with aspects of the new instruments.
“Nonetheless, we believe that collaboration with the regulator was effective and will contribute to an improved consumer experience for consumers migrating to the NBN.”
