Terria submits plans to Senate committee

The Terria consortium yesterday turned in its submission regarding the National Broadband Network (NBN) to the opposition-led Senate select committee.

The committee, which was founded by the Opposition in June, serves as a third-party watchdog to monitor and report the Government's practices and progress in building the network.

Terria, which is made up of eight Aussie telcos including Optus, also launched an advertising campaign in the Canberra airport that focuses on the need for a fair and equal bid process for the NBN.

Terria chairman Michael Egan reiterated his intentions to offer a partnership with Telstra if the consortium wins the NBN bid.

Egan believes that a series of equity owners would ensure users that the network was being run fairly.

Telstra, however, has rebuffed these advances, saying it has no interest in partnering with any telco competitors, and will provide a fair and open network on its own.

Bidding telcos have until September 12 to submit their proposals to the Senate committee, after which the committee will release the proposals to the public.
