The purpose of the article is to analyse the operation of Part XIC of the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) and identify the critical limitations of the present access regime. The operation of the long-term interests of end users principle, the principles underlying the formulation of access pricing, and the efficacy of dispute resolution procedures are examined in detail. Finally, the 2007 Guidelines for High Speed Broadband Network and Infrastructure Proposals are examined in order to consider the continuing role of Part XIC in a telecommunications landscape that is set to be dominated by high speed broadband infrastructure and services.
