Many of the amendments proposed to improve the efficiency of telecommunications infrastructure deployment outlined in the consultation paper have been the subject of numerous discussions between industry and the DITRDC and CA/AMTA are pleased that the DITRDC’s consultation paper continues to progress these discussions towards implementation.
