Telecom separation


Structural separation of Telecom

Telecom will be split into two separate companies - Telecom and Chorus2.  The split is part of the agreements to roll out ultra-fast broadband.


Early consideration of the impact of structural separation

Telecom's structural separation will be a major change in the telecommunications industry's structure and regulatory regime.

Because of this, we gathered public feedback on a discussion document to consider the split's implications for the:

  • Regulatory framework for copper services.
  • Operational and accounting separation of Telecom.
  • Local service telecommunication service obligations.


Submitters were then invited to provide feedback on the other submissions received.
