Telstra's separation shuffle

Telstra should accept any ruling from the ACCC on the wholesale DSL matter as the price of finalising the structural separation undertaking, which was never devised to implement true separation.

Telstra has released its draft structural separation undertaking (SSU), which sets out how it will provide wholesale services to its competitors on an equivalent basis in the future. While the 168-page document is still waiting for a final approval from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), this is a second draft into which the regulator has provided considerable input. The regulator has already indicated that it is “minded to accept the undertaking” subject to the regulation of wholesale DSL services.
