IDA's Directed Amendments to OpenNet's Proposed Modifications to its ICO

IDA has completed its review of OpenNet's proposed modifications to its ICO. While IDA found the majority of the proposed modifications to be in conformity with the requirements expressed in IDA's 27 September 2012 Direction, IDA also concluded that some failed to give full effect to the required modifications.

On 15 October 2012, IDA directed OpenNet to incorporate specific drafting language ("Directed Amendments") to Schedules 15 (Charges) and 18 (Dictionary) of OpenNet's ICO. For the avoidance of doubt, as specified in IDA's 27 September 2012 Direction, OpenNet's ICO incorporating the Directed Amendments will take effect retrospectively from 7 May 2012.

27 September 2012

IDA's Directed Modifications to OpenNet's Co-location Supplementary Cooling Service

IDA had stated in its direction dated 7 May 2012 that the charges in relation to OpenNet's proposed Co-Location Supplementary Cooling Service under its ICO were provisionally approved until such time that IDA had completed its review and audit. Thereafter, OpenNet would be required to modify the charges to incorporate the approved charges and apply them retrospectively from the date of IDA's provisional approval, i.e. 7 May 2012. IDA has since concluded its review.

Accordingly, IDA now directs OpenNet to modify Schedule 15 (Charges) to the ICO to incorporate the IDA-determined charges, and to propose certain changes to its ICO within 10 business days from 27 September 2012.

IDA's Decision on OpenNet's Reconsideration Request

OpenNet requested IDA to reconsider the requirement in the direction dated 27 October 2011 for OpenNet to complete the Project Study in respect of a request for the Co-Location Supplementary Cooling Service under its ICO within ten business days of the date of the request and instead allow OpenNet to complete the Project Study within fifteen business days. In consideration of OpenNet's clarification that the Project Study, amongst other things, involve additional preliminary on-site survey(s) which may be required before the actual OpenNet site survey, IDA agreed to allow OpenNet an additional five business days to complete the Project Study.

IDA further agreed to OpenNet's request to remove the requirement in the direction dated 27 October 2011 on OpenNet to provide reciprocal rights to the Requesting Licensees to terminate the Co-Location Supplementary Cooling Service in the event where (i) the Central Office had become unfit for its purpose, or (ii) OpenNet's right to own, maintain or operate the Central Office was revoked or terminated or expired given that they apply only to the Co-Location Service and not to the Co-Location Supplementary Cooling Service and it is not necessary to also re-address these two scenarios in the Co-Location Supplementary Service, provided that the service in the proposed Schedule 12B (Co-Location Supplementary Cooling Service) would be terminated automatically in conjunction with the same in Schedule 12 (Co-Location Service) for the said two scenarios.

IDA issued the decision on the reconsideration request on 9 December 2011.
