Communications minister Stephen Conroy has proposed amendments to telecom consumer safeguard legislation in advance of the structural separation of Telstra (ASX:TLS).
The proposed changes establish mechanisms through which the ACCC can consider an enforceable undertaking to separate.
They also provide a mechanism which sets out how Telstra will migrate customers to the NBN, and one which aims to improve the current equivalence and transparency measures while the network is rolled out.
The government said it may introduce further legislative changes if it deems more to be needed.
