The federal government is seeking comments on the Telecommunications in New Developments policy, which came into effect in March 2015.
Since the introduction of this policy, a lot has changed in the way telecommunications infrastructure is delivered in new developments. The National Broadband Network (NBN) rollout will also be completed in 2020.
In light of these changes, the government is reviewing the TIND policy so it continues to provide people moving into new developments with access to timely telecommunications infrastructure.
The Department of Communications and the Arts has released this short paper, covering issues they are seeking public feedback on. People are welcome to comment on any aspect of the current policy.
The department is aiming to complete the review of the policy and make any necessary changes before 1 July 2020.
Submissions close 17 January 2020.
