Consultation Paper on Possible Amendments to Telecommunications Carrier Powers and Immunities

ALGA notes the intention to clarify the operation of existing powers and immunities, amend references in the Telecommunications Code to reflect changes to legislation since the Code was drafted and to consider how new technologies and new types of facilities under the multi technology mix can be rolled out more efficiently and effectively.

ALGA understands the desire is to enable carriers to deploy the most modern and effective technology and reduce their administrative burden, but this should not be an end in itself.

We note that there may be potential improvements which can be made to streamline the installation of facilities, improve the provision of services to customers, and reduce the administrative burden and costs.
