The Issue
Consultation Period:

The Australian Government is interested in whether it can foster more efficient use of private telecommunications infrastructure by relaxing the carrier licence rules that would normally apply. Simplifying access to private networks could let carriers use existing infrastructure, for example, in regional areas to extend mobile coverage.

We invited comments about a proposed carrier licence exemption. The exemption will let private telecommunications infrastructure owners give carriers with access to their private infrastructure.

The proposed exemption aims to free up the use of private infrastructure by carriers. Any use of private network capacity would depend on the agreement of all parties and be commercially based.
