Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 5 Hansard (8 May) . . Page.. 1836..


TransACT has advised that, as at 1 May 2003, it was still working to restore services to 22 broadband customers and that, as at 6 May 2003, services to all but 2 of these customers were active.

TransACT has advised that while its actual customer targets and take up rates are commercial-in-confidence, and therefore not for public release, customer take up of TransACT's services has exceeded industry averages.

Noting the answer to Question (2) above, and the commercial-in-confidence nature of that question, TransACT has advised that all residents within the ACT can acquire TransACT's preselect telephony services. Residents within cabled areas can connect to the TransACT network and acquire TransACT broadband services.


At any period of time, there are a number of customers pending connection. Customers are connected as quickly as possible, however the time to connect is dependent upon factors such as those listed below in the answer to Question (4).

Noting the answer to Question (2) above, and the commercial-in-confidence nature of that question, TransACT has advised that the time period to connect customers varies and is dependent on a number of factors including:

whether the installation is standard or non-standard;

the services required by a particular customer;

porting requirements;

mandatory cooling off periods; and

network availability.

TransACT endeavours to connect all customers in a timely fashion.
