The unbundling of the local loop or in more technical terms Unconditioned Local Loop Services (ULLS) involves the use of unconditioned cable (typically copper) between end-users and a telephone exchange, where the cable terminates. This service enables access seekers to supply advanced, high-speed data services, such as DSL, to customers as well as local and long-distance voice services in competition with Telstra.

As a result, fundamentally new services can be developed which stimulate innovation, competition and new growth. Telstra had been hampering progress since 1998 it was not until the ACCC received new powers under a new Act that some progress was made in 2003; new tariffs were announced in December 2004. Then in 2007 new wholesale products (ie lower prices), forced upon Telstra by the ACCC started in the market place.

This focus report contains information on the ULL market in Australia generally covering the years 2006-2008 and is provided at a discount to the current reports on the subject. The report also contains information that is highly useful for a background briefing on the subject matter. It was last updated in late-2008 and will not be updated further. For up-to-date information see separate reports including: Australia - Infrastructure - ULL.
