Dear Mr Friedlander
Request for Information
Thank you for your email sent 13 July 2020 providing clarification of your request.
I understand that your request currently stands as follows:
“a copy of an electronic document (spreadsheet, database extract, or similar) showing the location and
distribution area (a string of the form [four letters]:[number]) of all existing FTTN cabinets as at 22 June
You have further clarified that you would still desire the information without “distribution area
” codes if these
cannot be released, and that you are flexible on the date of the information.
I have consulted with nbn
subject matter experts I understand that the processing time and therefore fee may be
affected by the degree of detail to which you seek the document to show location. As there are a number of
alternatives, what you mean by “location
” is an issue which requires clarification in any event before nbn
process your request.
Could you please clarify the format of location data you seek, such as: street address, geospatial location, or
latitude/longitude. For your reference, street address is likely to involve the lease processing time and therefore
the lowest charges.
In the meantime, I refer you again to my comments in my earlier correspondence regarding nbn
activities carve-out (CAC
). While I have not reviewed any requested documents, I note there is a possibility that
the CAC may apply to your request.
If you would like to discuss your request with me, please contact me on (02) 9031 3022.
I await your response.
Yours sincerely Rohan Singh
