ACCC seeks comment on NBN POI locations
- 06 August, 2012 10:32
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is seeking submissions on its consultation paper on the draft section list of points of interconnect (POI) for the National Broadband Network (NBN).
A total of 121 POIs will be used for the NBN, with the ACCC now required to publish a list detailing where the POI will be located.
While the ACCC has not revealed the exact location of POIs, a general suburb location has been provided in the consultation paper.
The ACCC has proposed for one POI to be located in the NT; two in the ACT; two in Tasmania; nine in SA; 14 in WA; 22 in Queensland; 30 in Victoria; and 41 in NSW.
Nine NBN Co-built POIs have been revised in the recent consultation paper and the North Parramatta POI has been relocated to the Parramatta Telstra exchange.
POIs are the connection point which will allow retail service providers and wholesale service providers to connect to the NBN.
The POI have been a contentious aspect of the NBN, with NBN Co originally seeking 14 POIs.
Rene Sugo, CEO of ISP MyNetFone, has previously stated once interim POI are removed NBN consumer prices will rise, with four interim POI currently being used until the final POIs are implemented over the next three years.
A final list of POIs will be published in September this year.
