15 August 2013

Pursuant to Section 12.3 of the Code of Practice for Next Generation National Broadband Network NetCo Interconnection Code, IDA shall review and may require OpenNet to modify the price(s) of the Mandated Services within three to five years from the date that the Interconnection Offer ("ICO") was first offered by OpenNet.

Considering that OpenNet has offered the ICO for more than three years and the terms and conditions of the ICO have undergone substantial revisions to keep pace with market developments, IDA was of the view that it was appropriate for IDA to commence its review of the charges for services offered under OpenNet's ICO in the third year. 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 15 August 2013.
