Telecom has provided investors with further detail on how it would structurally separate, in order to participate in the government’s Ultra Fast Broadband plan.
In a presentation posted on the Telecom website, which was shown to investors today and to the Telecommunications Carriers Forum a week ago, the document explains how Telecom would split its assets into two separate companies – Chorus2 (fixed network infrastructure operator) and ServCo (retail, mobile and ICT business).
Telecom Wholesale's products and services would be divided up between the two companies, with each set to control the following assets and systems:
Layer 1 assets – copper, fibre, physical plant, most exchange buildings
Layer 2 assets – DSLAMS and most other access electronics
Mobile network, PSTN and other service platforms (such as, messaging)
Ethernet aggregation (this would be on day-one split as in due course Chorus2 would develop its own Ethernet aggregation assets)
