Consultation Draft on Amending Carrier Powers and Immunities

ALGA appreciates the opportunity to comment on the consultation draft on changes to the Low-Impact Facilities Determination (LIFD).

This submission responds to the consultation draft on the proposed amendments to the Telecommunications (Low-Impact Facilities) Determination 1997 and the Telecommunications Regulations 2001, which was released for comment on 12 June 2015.

Overall, ALGA supports the intention and principle of the proposed technical amendments to the LIFD, which amends definitions and terminology to reflect the multi technology mix (MTM) approach adopted for the remaining rollout of the National Broadband Network.

However, ALGA reiterates its earlier concerns about the width of overhead cabling, as well as the size of the associated infrastructure.
