Telstra under attack over ADSL2+ Access

Telstra wholesale has just come into the ‘line of fire’ as nine of Australia’s other major Telecommunication Providers such as Optus, Internode, iiNet and Westnet lash out at Telstra and accuse them of anti competitiveness and shutting down their $2.5 billion wholesale arm.

In a letter to the ACCC drafted on behalf of the frustrated Telco’s, alleged impediments on Telstra’s monopoly and anti competitive nature have been cited for the following reasons: Capped Exchanges, Lengthy DSLAM approval and installation delays & Untenable high wholesale pricing.

Penalties as much as $10 million for each offence and a further $1 Million for each day the company remains in breach could be imposed.

The protesting ISPs, which include iinet, Internode, TCN Communications and Westnet, issued a nine-page letter to ACCC chairman Graham Samuel, requesting the ACCC to issue an urgent Competition Notice under Part XIB of the Trade Practices Act 1974. Additionally, it urges the commission to re-examine declaring regulatory access to all DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) broadband services, especially in areas where competition through alternative broadband platforms is unviable.

“This substantial lessening of competition will clearly have an adverse impact on consumers, both in terms of price and the range of services available to them in the long term,” he said. “For this reason, 10 erstwhile competitors have put their differences aside to urge the ACCC to start an investigation about issuing a Competition Notice.”

Internode ‘Please Explain’ Telstra ADSL2+ plans

With the recent news of Telstra enabling a further 900 Exchanges with ADSL2+ access, also comes doubt over the legality behind the ‘regulatory guarantee’ that Senator Conroy has granted to Telstra.

Managing Director of Internode ‘Simon Hackett’ claims that after making enquiries with respective agencies in regards to the recent announcement, he is puzzled by the legalities behind the guarantee. He’s also suggested that the Federal Government publish the precise contents behind the guarantee with Telstra along with a legal explanation.

“Years of precedent and practice (multiple Competition Notices) have made it clear that where Telstra offers a monopoly retail broadband service, they are required to offer it at wholesale, and at an access price that is tenable

“All existing BigPond Retail services are offered as a wholesale access version to the market in accordance with the above

“So if Telstra has been ‘guaranteed’ not to be required to be good wholesale citizens, what is to stop them withdrawing from the entire wholesale ADSL market – at all speeds, in all exchanges, nationally?,”

“And how, on earth, is the resulting rise in access cost for the 50% of non-BigPond ADSL consumers (as BigPond are the most expensive retail DSL provider in the market) going to be in the long term interests of those end users?

Telstra to enable 900 ADSL2+ Exchanges

In potentially good news for those in regions where Broadband speeds are limited, Telstra today released a surprise announcement stating that it will enable a further 900 telephone exchanges with ADSL2+ services.

The decision to enable the additional ADSL2+ exchanges has been brought about by a recent letter sent to Telstra from Communications Minister ‘Senator Stephen Conroy’ who stated that the Federal Government would not force Telstra to provide ADSL2+ services to competitors.

Fast broadband technology using ADSL2+ is to be rolled out by Telstra to an additional 900 local exchanges serving 2.4 million households, the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, announced today. – Gov. Media Release

“This initiative provides the bandwidth families need so they can simultaneously use several devices at home – one parent can download work files, another can plan the family holiday online, while the kids are also online researching for school projects,” – Mr Trujillo

“As a result of this advice, I concluded that there is a high degree of regulatory certainty in relation to the ACCC’s approach to wholesale ADSL2+ services. I have written to Telstra expressing my position, acknowledging that I agree with the ACCC’s stance. – Stephen Conroy
