a new tower and site access regime to allow eligible persons such as emergency service organisations to gain access to towers and related sites owned or operated by NBN Co. This will help these organisations to operate more effectively.
changes to the carrier powers and immunities regime to enable temporary telecommunications towers to be specified as low-impact facilities in certain circumstances, along with several minor technical changes to the regime. This would allow carriers to more efficiently provide better services for consumers during events (e.g. major sports events or festivals), peak holiday periods, emergency or routine maintenance, and when replacing a facility.
The Bill will be available on the Federal Legislation Register shortly.
