Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 1 Hansard (20 February) . . Page.. 377..
(2) Refer response to question (1).
(3) Refer response to question (1).
(4) The Member's question is too broad to answer definitively as it depends on the service required (eg voice, data, video or any combinations of these), what the Member specifically means by "signed up with Telstra", an individual client's needs and the basis of a client's relationship with Telstra. For example, if a customer only took a TransACT internet product they may still require a Telstra connection to their home for access to telephony services. Alternatively, if the customer took both TransACT telephony and internet products they may not necessarily need to be connected to a Telstra service. Similarly, if a customer is currently provided local access and telephony services through Optus or other resellers they can still obtain TransACT services.
(5) The Government is not in a position to provide legal advice on the relationship between clients and telecommunications service providers.
