Top Internet companies join forces over competitive NBN model

TERRiA Access Seekers Association (TASA) established to keep the NBN Co in check

The heads of five of Australia’s top Internet and telecommunications companies have joined forces to call for a pro-competitive approach towards the National Broadband Network (NBN).

Forming under the name TERRiA Access Seekers Association (TASA), the group said today that it was spurred on by the amount of misinformation currently being reported about the NBN.

Consisting of Netspace managing director Stuart Marburg, Primus Telecom CEO Ravi Bhatia, iiNet CEO Michael Malone, Optus CEO Paul O’Sullivan and Internode managing director Simon Hackett, the group’s goal is to ensure competition and innovation issues are considered in any decisions made by the NBN Co.

“TASA will offer a provider-neutral forum for legitimate access seekers to discuss and define how its members believe that the necessary technical access mechanisms, service definitions, pricing principles, and business interfaces should work together to ensure the success of the NBN,” Internode’s Hackett said.

“The association will be welcoming participation from access seekers intending to use the NBN and will operate in a way that ensures the interests of consumers, rather than the interests of individual service providers, ultimately comes first.”

The group says it will be extending an invitation for others to join.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
