On 25 February 2009, IDA issued a NetCo Interconnection Code in exercise of the powers conferred by section 26(1) (a) to (c), (f) and (g) of the Telecommunications Act (Cap. 323) (the "Act"). The NetCo Interconnection Code is intended to, inter alia, specify the pricing, terms and conditions of OpenNet Pte Ltd's ("OpenNet") services under the Interconnection Offer, and the obligations of both OpenNet and persons requesting such services from OpenNet. The obligations contained in this code are in addition to those contained in the Act, other statutes, regulations, directions, licences and/or codes of practice.
IDA may subsequently incorporate the NetCo Interconnection Code into the Code of Practice for Competition in the Provision of Telecommunication Services ("Telecom Competition Code") when it conducts the next triennial review of the Telecom Competition Code, or at such time as IDA considers appropriate.
On 7 April 2017, IMDA issued a revised NetCo Interconnection Code following a review of the NetCo Interconnection Code. The review was conducted to ensure that the pricing principles remain relevant. IMDA had also consulted the industry and had taken their comments and feedback into consideration. Consequential changes can be found on the NetCo Interconnection Code 2017.
