This audit would examine aspects of the Department of Communications and the Arts’ and nbn co limited’s management of the migration of existing fixed-line telephone services to the national broadband network.
As the national broadband network is rolled out, there is an 18-month migration window that starts when nbn co limited declares a region is ‘ready for service’. During the migration window, all voice, broadband and other services that operate on Telstra’s local access networks are to be migrated to services provided by nbn co limited. At the end of the migration window, Telstra is required to disconnect all services on its local access networks.
This potential audit is one of a series of audits of nbn co limited and forms part of a performance audit strategy to be delivered over several years.
