The 2011 amendments to the Telecommunications Act introduced information disclosure requirements for the companies building the ultrafast broadband fibre network and Chorus's copper network.
The local fibre companies (LFCs) are the companies that are building the fibre networks as part of the government's ultrafast broadband (UFB) network initiative. The LFCs are Chorus, Enable Networks, Ultrafast and Northpower Fibre.
LFCs may apply in writing to be exempt from the provisions of information disclosure determinations. The Commission may at any time, by written notice:
exempt the LFC from any or all of the provisions of an information disclosure determination
