Broadband Networks in Apartment Buildings

Open Blog PDFPrint Blog PDF

The Department of Communications has released an information note to assist building owners and managers to make informed decisions when selecting a telecommunications carrier to install equipment to enable the building to connect to the National Broadband Network.

The Department recommends that building owners and managers consider whether:

  • the service provider’s proposal will provide building occupants with a choice of providers and competition into the future
  • building occupants will be locked into the decision to use the service provider for a fixed period or in perpetuity
  • other carriers will be able to install competing cabling in the future
  • carriers are correctly advising on their rights to access facilities, particularly in respect to in-building cabling
  • the service provider’s proposal is consistent with pre-existing contracts with other providers, and
  • the service provider has a clear plan for managing possible interference with existing services
  • consider lease and licence agreements
