Dear An Vo,

I wish to contend the charges to FOI1415/33.

The information requested in FOI1415/33 is freely published by NBN Co to the public domain on their public website. The network boundaries are provided to the public on the NBN Co rollout map, found here: http://nbnco.com.au/develop-or-plan-with....

Given the FOI request simply requests for the original file that is used to render these network maps, I find it quite extraordinary that a total 21 hours will be required to assess the commercial sensitivity of this information. As the information is already publicly available in a different format, one would conclude that NBN Co conducts at least 21 hours of weekly analysis on this commercial sensitivity issue. As such, a duplication of such work would be unnecessary.

Therefore, I find there to be no reason that:
a) the information is commercially sensitive given it is already publicly published by NBN Co, and;
b) if the information were sensitive, that this FOI request to require an additional 21 hours to come to a decision, given that NBN Co would most definitely have to conduct such analysis on a weekly basis (as it updates its rollout maps)

Please reconsider these charges in light of this contention.

Kind regards,
Kenneth Tsang

Completely agree with this request and the disagreement with the paid FOI request. Regularly work with NBN contractors/providers - used to be that the downloadable MID/MIF files were the only way of having up-to-date, usable boundaries.

Please provide these files in some sort of mappable format again.

I have also emailed regarding this request, and received no response at all.
