  • On 4 February 2019, the ACMA registered the Communications Alliance industry code - Next-Generation Broadband systems Deployment in Customer Cabling C658:2019 under Part 6 of the Telecommunications Act 1997. 

The three part code applies to carriers and carriage service providers and is designed to prevent performance-degrading unacceptable interference within customer cabling that carries legacy systems (e.g. ADSL2+ technology) and/or Next-Generation Broadband Systems (e.g. VDSL2, G.Fast technology).


The code can be accessed on the ACMA website: ACMA Register of Codes
