On 12 December 2018, the ACCC commenced a combined public inquiry into making final access determinations (FADs) for the six fixed line telecommunications services and the wholesale ADSL service. The fixed line services are the:

  • unconditioned local loop service (ULLS)
  • line sharing service (LSS)
  • fixed originating access service (FOAS)
